Puccini, la Bohème Adolfo Hohenstein Vintage Italian Theater Fine Art Giclee Print
This is a fine art giclee print of a vintage Italian theater advertising poster for the Puccini, la Bohème Opera. La Boheme is an opera composed of four seperate acts by an Italian composer named Giacomo Puccini to an Italian libretto by Luigi Illica and Giuseppe Giacosa. The world premere of this opera was performed in Turin on February 1, 1896 at the Teatro Regio (now the Teatro Regio Torino) Toscanini conducted a performance of it on U.S. in 1946 via radio, and this performance was eventually released on records. It is the only recording of a Puccini opera led by its original conductor. Leoncavallo composed an opera of the same name and based on the same story, but with his own libretto. His La bohème, which was premiered in 1897, focuses more on the Musetta and Marcello relationship, rather than that of Mimì and Rodolfo as in Puccini's. Leoncavallo's La bohème is almost never played anymore, while Puccini's is, according to Opera America, the second most performed opera in North America, second only to Madama Butterfly, also a masterpiece by Puccini.
