La Bohème, 15 Mar – 14 Jul 2014 (Paris)

Overview

In Paris, a young man and a young woman meet, fall in love, are separated by life and then reunited again before the ultimate separation. Each phrase of La Bohème touches us for ever.

There is perhaps nothing more straightforward than La Bohème: a young man and a young woman meet, fall in love, are separated by life and then reunited again before the ultimate separation. It happens in Paris, an eternally Bohemian Paris, as legendary as it is real.

Out of this simplicity springs something supernatural: an irrepressible and ever-new emotion. Puccini filled La Bohème with unforgettable images: Mimi, muse-like, entering the poet’s room, a candle in her hand… the lover’s moonlight duet, the brightly lit grand café, the impossible farewells in the freezing morning, and finally, death on a shabby bed.

But these places are just as equally realms within ourselves: his café Momus is the very whirlwind of existence, his Barrière d’Enfer is the frightening barrenness of the heart: La Bohème evokes the things which haunt us all: the love which blazes and transports us to heaven, the fleeting nature of youth, and all-destroying time. In 1896, Puccini still had numerous masterpieces ahead of him.

But arguably he would never again achieve the clarity and splendour of melody whose every phrase touches us and is engraved in our hearts from the moment we first hear it.
