"Seasons of Love" & "Musetta's Waltz" Throughout the Show Edit

By far the most widely recognised song in RENT, "Seasons of Love" appears in three incarnations throughout the show. Firstly, in "Seasons of Love" (in the beginning of the film version, and in the beginning of Act 2 in the stage production); secondly in "Seasons of Love B" (in the beginning of "Act 2" of the film version, and later on in Act 2 in the stage production); and thirdly in "I'll Cover You (Reprise)" (in "Act 2" of the film version, and Act 2 of the stage production).

"Musetta's Waltz" is a song from the opera La bohème by Giacomo Puccini, an Italian composer. La bohème is the basis for RENT, and "Musetta's Waltz" provided the inspiration for the RENT song "Tango: Maureen" - Maureen Johnson is based on Musetta. Mark Cohen mentions "Musetta's Waltz" in the RENT song, "La Vie Boeheme": "And Roger will attempt to write a bitter sweet, evocative song ...[Roger plays a few chords on the guitar] ... that doesn't remind us of 'Musetta's Waltz.'" The chords played can be heard several times throughout the show while Roger struggles to write a song.
