Certainly, the critic Harold Schoenberg had La Boheme in mind when he commented, "While the basis of Verdi's operas is a battle cry, the basis of Puccini's operas is a mating call." La Boheme is about youthful aspiration and tender love. Its poignant story and Puccini's soul-searching music emphasize how tragedy and grief can elevate humanity to consciousness, awareness, and maturity.
