Since its premiere in Turin in 1896 La Bohème has been considered one of the most beloved operas of all times in music history and every return to Naples is a cherished discovery. As in the great works of drama and literature, the protagonist is young love, lived fiercely despite the misery and modesty of a loft and shared with bohemian artists. La Bohème is a unique opera not only as far as Puccini's production but also in the operatic landscape of a century that was about to leave room for a new one. Surely Puccini's syndrome kills the heroine of the moment as it happens in his other works, however, thanks to music, the mix between pathos and vital energy creates a perfect device built on the balance of couples in love. Puccini composed sublime music to describe a situation of social unrest, which today appears very modern and actual, as it is pointed out by Emma Dante's own interpretation in this new production of Teatro San Carlo, destined to be performed many times with its innovative formula and constant renewal of the show.
