Notes & Reviews:

The plot for 'Edgar', Puccini's second opera, is set in 13th century Flanders and portrays a tenor hero torn between the pure Fidelia and the demonic Tigrana. It boasts powerfully dramatic ensemble scenes like the 'Requiem' in Act III, and constant melodic inspiration fully worthy of the composer's future lyrical outpourings; heart-stopping moments like the arias for Fideia, which enable the great Julia Varady to add a further unforgettable character to her gallery of operatic roles.
