Commissioned following the success of Le villi, Puccini’s second opera tells of Edgar, an impulsive young knight who runs off with the seductive gypsy Tigrana. Eventually, bored of their life of indulgence and debauchery and seeking something purer, he fakes his own death to escape. But Tigrana is not one to let go easily, and soon takes her revenge…
Despite its dark themes of murder and vengeance, Puccini’s score is one of remarkable lyricism, lush harmonies and rich orchestral colouring, clearly heralding the later genius of both Madama Butterfly and Tosca. Italian conductor Gianluca Marcianò leads a cast of internationally-renowned soloists, chorus and The Orchestra of Scottish Opera as they bring this rare gem to life.
Sung in Italian with English supertitles
