Ritorna all'elenco delle sezioni della categoria PUCCINI'S PLACES
Of the twelve operas that Giacomo Puccini wrote, three in particular hold a strong position in the list of the world's most often presented operas: Madama Butterfly, La Bohème and Tosca have maintainted first, second and fourth position for many years. Here we offer an insight into the mind of a genius as we take a look at what was happening in his life when he wrote each of his brilliant works. We also introduce and briefly examine the subject of each masterpiece, accompanied by some of the most familiar musical tags from the Puccini repetoire. Here we invite you to tell us your most memorable experience of Puccini's opera, perhaps a performance or a film you have seen, or a recording or broadcast you have heard.
