But I read it online so it must be true, right?

IN the margins of Puccini’s manuscript score for La Boheme, Mimi’s death is marked by a skull and crossbones.

Of course I did then look up this information and it does appear to be true.

Someone has a photo of it you can purchase (and view) here. (I contacted the photographer but I have no clue if I can afford the photo.)

Opening night tonight!


Someone found a copy of the skull and crossbones that I can legally place here, as far as I can tell … (if I’m wrong it’ll come down. Trust me!):

Here’s another page of the score in Puccini’s hand, and this clearly states at the website that it is free for use on a website:

La Bohème, Act II, Sextet 1
