About

Pietro Mascagniís single work for the early days of cinema was composed in winter time 1914/15. The idea of the film director Nino Oxilia was to create a 'Poema cine-musicale', a synthesis of the arts with music, poetry and finally cinematography. The plot is something like a female version of 'Faust', based on a poetry by Fausto Maria Martini. Mascagni himself conducted the first performance in July 1917 and orientated his composition towards Richard Wagner's musical language. The French-German TV channel Arte restored this treasure of early cinema in 2006 and recorded the complete film music score.
