Résumé: 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.
