Murger was the best writer of the “bohemian life”, with these penniless artists who were able to burn their manuscripts to get some heat. They just dream of another kind of life, away from bourgeoisie and materialism.
Puccini focuses on the moving love story of Rodolfo and Mimi. The drama is staged in a future with no hope, where love and art are the ultimate refuge.
