About

A century after its composition, Puccini’s La rondine (“The Swallow”) finally finds its deserving place in the modern opera houses with this new production directed by Mexican star opera tenor Rolando Villazón! The opera’s title will be familiar to connoisseurs of the soprano bel canto repertoire, who will recognize one of the most beautiful arias ever written, “Ch'il bel sogno di Doretta”. In this production, the multifaceted tenor, host, writer, and artistic director Rolando Villazón give a fresh coat of paint to a work whose central dilemma recalls that of another operatic masterpiece, La Traviata: Magda, nicknamed “l’hirondelle” (“swallow” in Italian) must choose between a Parisian banker Rambaldo and her true love Ruggero. Puccini’s beguiling musical score and the opera’s straightforward plot mesh well with this productions innovative staging to create true bel canto magic!
