Based on stories by Henri Merger but also infused with the composer's own experiences as a penniless graduate, Puccini's powerful opera La Boheme portrays its youthful characters' romantic outlook on life and the brutally tragic end to their innocence. The story is set around 1830 but director Orpha Phelan sees Puccini's characters as equally at home in our times: "their story is universal, all that is needed is to understand what it is like to be young and in love!" This Malmo production was acclaimed in the Svenska Dagbladet as "one of the most moving renditions of Puccini's opera I have ever seen".
