5 Works in La bohème - Puccini/Illica/Giacosa
Schaunard seems to be the only one who hears the door slam over Rodolphe’s agonised screams. It takes him a beat to catch on, but as soon as he does, he rushes down the stairs in pursuit of Colline.
My god, why do we have so many stairs. What must it have meant to go up those when you can’t draw air into your lungs.

1892. 1989. Paris. New York City. Marcello and Rodolfo and Mimi and Musetta and Schaunard and Colline. Mark and Roger and Mimi and Maureen and Angel and Collins. Two dates and two cities and two bands of souls (living and dying and loving) immortalized in word and song, all between the fifty-one million, nine hundred and thirty-three thousand and two hundred minutes separating those two dates; the same way a piece of golden string is stretched between two hands.

Musetta hears that Mimì has left the Vicomte and goes to look for her, knowing all the time that there is nothing she can do for her.
Marcello, Rodolfo, Colline, and Schaunard - the painter, the poet, the philosopher and the musician - share a small garret, struggling in extreme poverty with nothing to help them get by other than their sense of humour, and even that is born out of necessity. But when Mimì stumbles into their life in a moment of glorious serendipity, everything changes - some of it for the better, some of it for the worse.
Following Giacomo Puccini's La Bohème closely, the four young bohemians take us through the Quartier Latin, through love, through poverty and through misery.
