Notes & Reviews:
'Le Villi,' signifying the ghosts of maidens deserted by their lovers, is the title of this two-act opera by Puccini. The libretto is based on a Central European legend. It was first produced in 1884 in Milan, after it had been rejected in a prize competition at the Milan Conservatory, but the composer later revised it with the help of Boito. It was Puccini's first work for the lyric stage.Notes & Reviews:
