La Rondine - program cover

January 28, 30, 31 – 7:30 PM

When Magda finally finds true love and leaves her fashionable city life for romance on the French Riviera, she discovers that she can’t escape her past.  Puccini wanted to evoke the romance, waltzes, and popularity of Viennese operetta with a plot reminiscent of both La traviata and Die Fledermaus. Luckily for us, he couldn’t escape the fact that he was still Puccini.

Sung in the original Italian with English surtitles.
