Description

It was Giacomo Puccini who challenged established norms by putting women at the center of his storytelling and this collection will focus on their pivotal roles in his operas. Their fragility and complexity is explored through his central characters and this episode contrasts the purity of Gianni Schicchi’s Lauretta with La Boheme’s flirty Musetta. But it wasn’t just Puccini who conveyed emotion through his female leads – Mozart’s evil Queen of the Night and Wagner’s Isolde also feature in this episode with powerful performances from Sonia Bellugi and Francesca Patane.
