Notes & Reviews:

Respighi composed several operas, of which 'La Fiamma' is generally considered the most successful. Enchanted by the Byzantine-era mosaics in Ravenna churches, Respighi had long wanted to write an opera in such a setting but no libretto suggested itself. When the composer's regular librettist, Claudio Guastalla, suggested an opera adapted from the stage play 'Anna Pedersdotter, the Witch,' by Norwegian dramatist Hans Wiers Jenssen, Respighi felt it could be recast in early medieval Ravenna. The result was 'La fiamma,' which had a well-received premiere at the Royal Opera House in Rome in January 23, 1934 with the composer conducting. This is a live performance, Milan, August 7, 1955.
