Absolutely beautiful and perfectly done in every respect! The sets were amazing, the performers were quite good, and the staging was fantastic. A gem of an opera!

I feel like a pill but the singing was sub-par. Racette is characterful but her voice is expressive, not beautiful and Magda's music is all about beauty. Marcus Haddock was okay but both of them seemed too old. I don't think it would have...continued

I loved the opera, music and singing. etc. The seating was great. This is the first opera I attend that the conductor is a woman. And I love it!!!!

The sets were spectacular, the voices were sublime and the performance was light yet tragic. A great opera that is not often performed. I'm so happy I was able to attend thanks to you, Gold Star!

Description

Can a worldly Parisian courtesan find lasting love in the arms of a naive young man from the provinces? Our heroine Magda is living a life of luxury filled with free-flowing champagne, fizzy frivolity, and light-hearted liaisons. And her “patron” Rambaldo keeps footing the entire bill. Upon meeting the handsome young Ruggero, she realizes he’s her soul mate, and they run off to the Riviera together. But just as a swallow follows its inevitable destiny, Magda’s sordid past dictates the outcome of the illusion.

Featuring the heart-melting “Doretta’s Dream Song” (heard in the film A Room with a View), La Rondine is a little-known treasure-trove that includes some of Puccini’s most rhapsodic music. Marta Domingo directs the captivating production of this Puccini jewel.
