Description

The power of music is the perfect way to interpret human emotion and opera composers rose to the challenge of interpreting love’s joy and pain. A good love story is at the heart of any great opera and this collection explores Puccini’s tragedies - Tosca and La Boheme and features the famous love song from Cavalleria Rusticana. The youthful tenor voice of Michael Alfonsi concludes this episode with two arias – Donizetti’s Una Furtiva Lagrima and Puccini’s Donna non viai mai from Manon Lescaut.
