Recorded live in high-definition!A thoroughly Italian work inspired by Viennese operetta, this rarely performed Puccini gem tells the story of love between a kept woman from high society and a naïve younger man of moderate means. From the composer’s fabled Act I aria, “Chi il bel sogno,” to the glorious Act II café scene, this San Francisco Opera production features two world renowned singers at their finest: Romanian soprano Angela Gheorghiu and Russian tenor Misha Didyk. Ion Marin conducts La Rondine ("The Swallow") in an opulent Art Deco production design by Nicolas Joël that will dazzle your eye.
Sung in Italian with English subtitles

"[Gheorghiu's] tone was strong but tender, with an irresistible blend of earthiness and purity…and when she lofted the high notes…[she] seemed to make time stand still."
- San Francisco Chronicle
