Puccini under the stars

Of three works by Puccini composed consecutively (from 1892 to 1903), some of the most famous scenes are hereby presented. Two great singers and an acclaimed pianist-conductor propose what is not only a lyrical recital but a look at “fin de siècle” Europe, so well represented by the musician from Lucca and his librettists. From the Parisian intimacy of Bohème to the historical fresco of Tosca to the Japonisme of Madama Butterfly, we can see a world of images and sounds that is not only vocal hedonism but something deeper and hopelessly lost.
