Location: Monteabaro Recital Hall
Nina's summary of the plot of La Bohème and the fate of Mimi is so far off base that we have to entertain the possibility that she isn't a singer at all. However, the gap between what real-life opera fans think the opera is about and Puccini's intentions is so huge that in a way, we're all Ninas. For many opera fans, if they knew the real Puccini, nobody would go near his shows.
