“le Schaunard du très élégant David Pershall”

“Schaunard performed by the very elegant David Pershall”

Per-Erik Skramstad

“With the new production of Puccini’s La Bohème in Oslo Stefan Herheim and his team reaches a new high in terms of innovative reading of a work everyone thought they knew. Herheim’s La Bohème is heartbreaking and grotesque; images of death are always present.”
