LA BOHEME BROADWAY REVIEWS
Opening Night: December 8, 2002
Synopsis: La Boheme is an opera in four acts by Giacomo Puccini to an Italian libretto by Luigi Illica and Giuseppe Giacosa, based on Scenes de la vie de boheme by Henri Murger. The "bohemians" a poet, musician, painter and philosopher live together in a small garret in the Latin Quarter of Paris. Mimi, the heroine, meets the quartet when her candle blows out. This opera in the "verismo" era is the story of love at first sight, friendship, mistrust and jealosy; sadness and regret; reconciliation and death or "real life."
NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW:
"Suddenly, there's color in a gray, gray world.
To experience the opening moments of Baz Luhrmann's rapturous reimaging of "La Bohème," Puccini's classic opera of love in a garret, is to feel a bit like Judy Garland's Dorothy when she stepped out of her drab Kansas farmhouse and into the land of Oz.
For what first meets the eye from the exposed stage of the Broadway Theater, where "La Bohème" opened last night like a cascade of fireworks, is a cool industrial still life of machinery draped in sheets. The palette is of muted blacks and whites, a cheerless echo of the sooty, snowy streets of Manhattan outside. "
