On Dec. 15, I went to the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion to see "La Boheme" with my sophomore English class. I think that the Italian Giacomo Puccini did an impressive job at composing it in 1896. What I liked most about "La Boheme" was just viewing it. For example, in the first act it really did look like we were in an attic studio. Everything there just looked so real. I liked that feeling it gave me. Christopher Harlen did a splendid job at directing it. Before going to see it that day, I didn't know what to expect.
