Following the lives of four young bohemians as they fight, fantasize and fall in (and out) of love in the face of poverty, La Boheme is widely regarded as one of Puccini's greatest works, spawning myriad adaptations, even becoming the basis for hit musical RENT. Although the struggle and strife (and excitement) of 1840's Paris may seem worlds away to us now, the themes have remained timeless and universal.
