About

When Giacomo Puccini received an offer from Vienna “to write an opera – yes: similar to Der Rosenkavalier, only more entertaining and more organic,” he replied, “An operetta, that for me is out of the question.” Two suggestions were submitted to him from Vienna, and he selected La rondine (The Swallow) for his work. The three-act ‘commedia lirica’ premiered in Monte Carlo in 1917, and three years later it made its way to the Volksoper in Vienna. The Munich Radio Orchestra performed La rondine at the Prinzregententheater during its first Sunday Concert of the 2015/16 season. The outstanding Rumanian-Swiss soprano Elena Moșuc sang the title role, and the Munich Radio Orchestra’s new principal conductor Ivan Repušić introduced himself to the public with an impressive debut. This production is now being released on CPO. The well-known opera love triangle, soprano-tenor-baritone, offers listeners many opportunities to smile with delight.
