Puccini: La Rondine / Veronesi/Puccini Festival, Vassileva, Dashuk [DVD]

Album Summary

>Puccini, Giacomo : La Rondine
Performers Conductor Ensembles Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Although one of his most consistently lyrical operas, 'La rondine' (The Swallow) remains one of Puccini's least known. Dissatisfied with the result of his work, Puccini wrote three versions, with two different endings, and continued to make further revisions up to his death in 1924. The innovative 2007 production at the Torre del Lago Giacomo Puccini Festival, presented on this DVD, is in effect a fourth version, which combines Acts I and II of the first version (1917), with Lorenzo Ferrero's 1994 orchestration of parts of the Finale of Act III of the incomplete third version (1921), some of which had survived only in piano score, as well as Ruggero's Act I romanza, 'Parigi e la citta dei desideri', from the second version (1920).
