Généralités: Histoire, thèmes et particularités


The Life story of the opera composer. Puccini, drawing parallels between the composer and his works. The show imagines Puccini and his friends as models for “La Boheme” -high-spirited young men living in poverty while they scribble and paint in search of art and fame. Then it turns sour with Puccini’s tortured relationship with his common-law wife, Elvira. Rapidly jealous of his affairs with young women, she causes a domestic tragedy leading their maid to kill herself. However, he remains irrevocably linked to Elvira until his death from throat cancer.

Commentaires :
Apart from Lewis Fiander as Puccini, all the other performers played several roles each and also sang a number of arias accompanied by a seven piece orchestra. They were actors, not opera singers, and the end results were a little worrying to most critics. No one was quite sure at whom this show was aimed: opera enthusiasts hated what was being done to the music, non-opera buffs resented the story being interrupted with disconnected arias. It closed within a month.
