Of these, Artur Rucinski stood out as a jaunty and lively Marcello and Janai Brugger was a strong, engaging Musetta. Her famous introductory aria“ Quando me’n vo,” also known as“ Musetta’s Waltz,” was the highlight of the La Bohème Has a Power, Even With Lackluster Principals by Marc Porter Zasada contributing writer S omehow, La Bohème always works. Maybe it’s the music by Giacamo Puccini. Maybe it’s the simple but perfectly balanced story of young love, art and fatal illness.

In the hopes of preventing that, clergy from nearly a dozen churches gathered in City Hall on Wednesday, May 23, to protest the plan and to warn of a lawsuit if the maps are not reconsidered. The law firms Akin Gump and Bird Marella have agreed to pursue a legal challenge, pro bono, on behalf of stakeholders in the Eighth District, said Grace Yoo , executive director of the Korean American Council. The city council in March approved the maps, which remove most of Downtown from Jan Perry’s Ninth District and give it to José Huizar’s 14th District.
