Puccini’s ravishing heartbreaker -the inspiration for Broadway’s RENT- opens on a snowy Christmas Eve in 1830s Paris. A garret of artists starving in bohemian poverty set out to blow their rent money on one splendid night in the Latin Quarter, swirling through unforgettable locales such as the Café Momus, which vividly springs to life in this production. The poet Rodolfo’s chance encounter with the seamstress Mimi, who harbors a terrible secret, sparks a passionate and timeless story about young lovers hurled together by fortune and driven apart by jealousy.
