Program Notes

Donde Lieta (1896) comes from Puccini’s famous opera, La Bohème. Premiered in 1896, La Bohème is one of the most frequently performed operas worldwide. The four-act Italian opera is set in Paris, France, around 1830. Rudolfo, a Bohemian, is living in Paris and falls in love with Mimi. The aria is sung by Mimi following a fight between her and Rudolfo. Rudolfo has blamed Mimi for flirting with other men, but in actuality he doesn’t want to be with Mimi because she is dying.
