Rent is a rock opera with music and lyrics by Jonathan Larson, based on Giacomo Puccini’s immortal opera "La Bohème." With an opening song "Seasons of Love" - which describes how to measure a year in a life, along with numerous other songs, tell the story of a group of young artists and musicians struggling to survive in New Yorks Lower East Side Village in the thriving days of the disappearing Bohemian lifestyle.
