Puccini's beautiful and passionate music, sets which imaginatively recreate the spirit of Paris around 1930, and the voices of renowned singers promise an unforgettable evening of opera. The Stanislavsky Opera Company was established in 1918 as the opera studio of the famed Bolshoi Opera. Since that time, the company has had a long and distinguished history and is considered one of the top Russian opera companies performing today. Sung in Italian with English super titles.
"This production is a rare example of an opera in which the performers perfectly match their characters both in terms of beauty and talent." - The Moscow Tribune
"sincerity of feelings and youthful ardor --the very essence of a Puccini opera-- are fully present in this production ." - Moscow Times
