Puccini quotes from his iconic opera "La Boheme"

Large and bold AMQS on an off-white 7.5 x 4.75 album page, prominently signed and dated below in ink, "Giacomo Puccini, Torre del Lago, 20.8.96." Puccini pens a couple bars from his iconic opera "La Boheme," writing the title above. Handsomely mounted, double-matted, and framed with an original postcard photo (bearing a facsimile signature) to an overall size of 13.75 x 18. In very fine condition. Based on a story by French writer Henri Murger set in 1840s Paris, La Boheme was Puccini's first major success—making him rich and famous—and arguably his greatest work. After its 1896 debut in Turin, the piece was quickly adopted into the international repertory.
