Giacomo Puccini

December 22, 1858 - November 29, 1924
born in Lucca, Italy, composed during the Romantic period
Giacomo Puccini (1858-1924) composed some of the most beloved operas of all time, including La bohème, Tosca, and Madame Butterfly, which are at the core of the repertoire. He was considered Verdi's successor as the next great Italian opera composer. Puccini's mature works incorporated the naturalistic, often melodramatic elements of verismo opera. He was especially gifted in writing memorably for the voice, and his music is notable for its warm, expansive lyricism, and for its unabashed emotionality, theatricality, and passion. Other important operas include Manon Lescaut, Gianni Schicchi, and Turandot, which he left incomplete at his death. ~ Stephen Eddins, Rovi

Giacomo Puccini was the most important composer of Italian opera after Verdi is an insupportabl e statement.

At first i was like Wha? Then i realized, she's singing un bel di in english...si g h , kinda takes away from the power of this song...

Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in 2 days. Now you started reading this so don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in the next 143 minutes. When done press f6 and your lovers name will appear on the screen in big letters this is so scary because it actually works
Where is the bio on Maria callas ?
I also wish Pandora would list names of individual songs along with the singer in the classical/op e r a collections.
Brings tears because its perfect
kiri te kanawa singing

This was Che Gelida manina. It appears that Pandora is only identifying the Operas and not the specific songs/arias under Now Playing. I am trying to expand my appreciation of opera and that information would be useful.

This is Roberto Alagna, who I think is the most emotional opera singer I have ever heard. He might not be as technically perfect as Pavarotti, but his singing is much more beautiful and soulful! And Musetta is sung by his then-wife, Angela Gheorgiu.
leongmiller
Who is singing Musetta? It's not Netrebko
lkgrebnel
Though they die yet they live. . .
