La Bohème is an opera composed by Giacomo Puccini to an Italian libretto by Luigi Illica and Giuseppe Giacosa.The story is set in Paris in the period around 1830.

RENT, a 1996 musical by Jonathan Larson is based on La bohème. Here the lovers, Roger and Mimi, are faced with AIDS and progress through the action with songs such as "Light My Candle", which have direct reference to La bohème Many of the character names are retained or are similar (e.g. the character Angel is given the surname "Schunard"), and at another point in the play, Roger's roommate and best friend Mark makes a wry reference to "Musetta's Waltz", which is a recurring theme throughout the first act and is played at the end of the second act.
