HA NOI (VNS) — Hanoi Cinematheque will be screening the classic version of La Boheme by composer Giacomo Puccini on Sunday.
Premiered in 1896 in Turin, Italy, the four-act opera is Puccini's most popular opera.
It is based on the 1851 novel by Henri Murger, La Vie de Boheme. The libretto of the opera was freely adapted from the novel, combining comic elements of the impoverished life of the young protagonists with tragic consequences, and romance is woven in throughout the story.
The opera will be screened in Italian with English subtitles. The screening will start at 7pm at 22A Hai Ba Trung Street. A donation of VND60,000 is suggested. — VNS
