Puccini’s juvenile opera was an immense success right at the first performance. The love story is also gripping but the widely floating tunes are especially beautiful. It is remarkable that new colours appear in the work, earlier unknown in opera literature, characteristics of impressionism.
You can watch the opera in the Hungarian State Opera, Budapest in a new but traditional interpretation since 2008.
1087 Budapest, II. János Pál pápa tér 30.
