Puccini's 'La Bohème' is an opera in four acts, to an Italian libretto by Luigi Illica and Giuseppe Giacosa, based on Scènes de la vie de bohème by Henri Murger, a collection of vignettes portraying young bohemians living in the Latin Quarter of Paris in the 1840s. Although usually called a novel, it has no unified plot. Like the 1849 play by Murger and Théodore Barrière, the opera's libretto focuses on the relationship between Rodolfo and Mimì, ending with her death. Performers:

Mimì: Nicole Car.
Rodolfo: Michael Fabiano.
Marcello: Mariusz Kwiecien.
Musetta: Simona Mihai.
Schaunard: Gyula Nagy.
Colline: Luca Tittoto.
Benoît: Jeremy White.
Alcindoro: Wyn Pencarreg.

Royal Opera House Chorus & Orchestra. Conductor: Antonio Pappano.

Recorded in 2017.
