Luigi Illica : [libretto of 'La Boheme]

'The music of "La Boheme" having taken special hold of me, I read the libretto in the Mitchell Library, and as much as I could find about Murger and his world, and the people he knew who lived on black coffee and little else in romantic Paris, and was saddened and perplexed by the opera's alloy of sordidness and sentimentality'.

Century: 1900-1945     Reader/Listener/Group: Ralph Glasser      Print: Book
