La bohème, Puccini's fourth opera (original poster above) was based on the book by Henri Murger, La Vie de Bohème. It premiered in Turin in 1896, and within a few years, had been performed in many of the leading opera houses of Europe, and in America. Bohème remains one of the most frequently performed operas ever written.

visual communication - as you can see that a giesha girl is clearly displayed, this gives us an understanding that the opera is more than likely set in Japan, as the girl is set with her back to us could demonstrate the heart ache she receives in the opera. the red butterfly also relates to the title of the opera and the colour red demonstrates mixed emotions such as love and anger

Original Opera Poster, Puccini's Turandot. Art print from Art.com. Puccini died before finishing his last opera, the dark, beautiful, and exotic Turandot. The lush exoticism of Puccini's swan song fit perfectly in the art deco movement of the 1920's.
