On different parts of it were created “Temenuzhka” and two other works – peaks in the history of opera art – the operas “Bohemia” by Giacomo Puccini and Leoncavallo. “In Bulgaria there are two attempts to put the title, unfortunately, with a too transformed libretto. and replaced characters because of communist censorship of the era – not by the original text of the work, but by variations written by Soviet librettists. Our team decided to put the work for the first time in our country on the original version, “said director Boyko Bogdanov. The operetta tells about the dreams and life of three boys – musician, artist and poet.
