How Puccini’s opera La Rondine was caught behind enemy lines


When Giacomo Puccini’s La Fanciulla del West premiered in New York in 1910, the house collapsed. In the 25 years since his first opera, Le Villi, was staged in Milan, the composer had firmly established himself with the success of Manon Lescaut, La Bohème, Tosca and – finally – Madama Butterfly, which today, surprisingly, had been a minor flop when it was first performed.

American audiences loved his work, and his latest work had been eagerly awaited. La Fanciulla was, after all, based on a Broadway play that set the story in the middle of the California Gold Rush.
