Italian original version with Czech and English surtitles
The opera La Boheme is inspired by the book Scenes de la vie de boheme by Paris-based painter and writer Henry Murger. After its publishing in 1851 the book gained a great success and Giacomo Puccini immediately sensed the enormous dramatic potential in the work.
The moving story of the love between the poet Rodolfo and the tender Mimi, who is not destined to live long, and of the friendship of four young Montmartre artists was an ideal theme for an opera. It was premiered on 1 February 1896 at the Teatro Regio in Turin, conducted by Arturo Toscanini.

The National Theatre was built from the desire of the Czech people for national independence. Its building was financed from the collections on which participated broad masses of people as well as important donators (including the nobility and the emperor himself). The theatre foundation ceremonial on 16th May 1868 became a national celebration.
The theatre was opened in 1881. In the same year the theatre burned down, and this tragic event caused a huge wave of new collections to support the restoration of the theatre. The National Theatre was re-opened in 1883 by the opera Libuše by Bedřich Smetana and since then it has been serving as a place of Czech national identity and as a flagship of the Czech culture to these days.
Outstanding performance. Despite we took place in the first gallerie, we cpuld see and hear perfectly. Excellent management of the event.
