Puccini's La Bohème, which evokes the fragility of happiness in an unhappy world, is one such “squarcio di vita” (slice of life). It has sentimental overtones, however, which temper the harshness of social reality. The characters created by Mürger in his Scènes de la vie de bohème reminisce about the hardship they endured as young artists (the Café Momus, the festivities, and poor Mimi, overtaken by death in the flower of her youth). Àlex Ollé makes a bold re-reading of the opera, choosing a working-class area as the backcloth to this hankering for bygone years, for that fleeting moment when Mimì and Rodolfo were happy. Puccini's sublime music expresses the very essence of the plot: memories viewed as the fragile threads that keep us attached to life. La bohème, la bohème: Ça voulait dire on a vingt ans. La bohème, la bohème, Et nous vivions de l’air du temps. ("La bohème, la bohème": it meant that we were twenty. "La bohème, la bohème", and we lived on the air of time.)
