Sanguine Little Bag

Price: $48.00 Members: $43.20




Sanguine Little Bag

Three clusters of deep purple, silk ribbon violets on the front and a black ribbon border running around the top brings a vintage sensibility to this charming little bag embroidered with an all-over pattern of magenta on black.

It has a silk exterior, soft silk velvet interior with a small inside pocket, a large outside pocket and a zipper top. A multi-color fabric strap measures 54” long from end to end.

The unexpected mix of patterns in this bohemian or “boho” bag is reflective of the the bohemian lifestyle portrayed in the Met’s much-loved production La Bohème.

La Bohème

One of the most popular operas of all time, Giacomo Puccini’s timeless masterpiece, La Bohème made its world première on February 1,1896, at the Teatro Regio in Turin, where it was conducted by the young Arturo Toscanini.

Set in Paris, in the 1830s, the near-destitute artist Marcello and poet Rodolfo try to keep warm on Christmas Eve in their Latin Quarter garret by feeding the stove with pages from Rodolfo’s latest drama. When Mimì, their neighbor, knocks on the door asking to borrow a candle she and Rodolfo
meet. Thus begins a fateful relationship as the two struggle to sustain their love against the challenges of poverty, jealousy and physical decline.

The Metropolitan Opera staged La Bohème for the first time on December 26,1900, with Luigi Mancinelli conducting. Since then it has been performed at the Met over a thousand times. Its 2018/2019 season production was hailed by the New York Times as “A thrilling La Bohème … radiating warmth … luxury cast”.

Puccini died in Brussels on November 29, 1924. The news of his death reached Rome during a performance of La Bohème. The opera was immediately stopped and the orchestra played Chopin’s Funeral March for the stunned audience.
