About this title


The scion of a distinguished family of musicians, Giacomo Puccini (1858–1924) succeeded Verdi as modern Italy's preeminent composer for the theater. Some of his loveliest and most memorable vocal music appears in the celebrated opera La Bohème, an enchanting work based on Henri Murger's novel Scènes de la vie de Bohème.
First performed at the Teatro Regio, Turin, in 1896, La Bohème quickly developed into a staple of the operatic repertoire and has remained so to this day. From the lyrical phrases of the love duet of Rodolfo and Mimi to the ever-popular Musetta's Waltz, this work has come to be regarded as Puccini's masterpiece. Grove's Dictionary of Music and Musicians observes that "Puccini's music reflects the alternate gaiety and pathos of Murger's novel with a truth and sincerity to which no name but that of genius can be applied."
This handsome and moderately priced new edition of the opera's vocal score contains the complete music for voices with a piano reduction of the orchestral score. Ideal for study, rehearsal, and recital performance, it will be treasured by singers and all lovers of the finest operatic and vocal music.

About the Author:

Italian composer Giacomo Puccini (1858–1924) created La Boheme, Madama Butterfly, Turandot,Tosca, and other beloved operas. He was the most popular opera composer in the world at the time of his death, and his works remain standards of the repertoire.
