(Puccini: La bohème). Bass. Landlord of the house in whose attic live four bohemians. On Christmas Eve, as they celebrate with meagre rations and a bottle of wine, he calls to ask for his rent, which they cannot afford to pay. They ply him with wine and he boasts of his extra-marital conquests. They feign disgust at such behaviour in a married man and throw him out—the rent still unpaid. Created (1896) by Alessandro Polonini (the creator also of Alcindoro).
