Enchanting Puccini Classic Returns in HD: La Rondine at The Met

The Metropolitan Opera revives Giacomo Puccini’s poignant opera “La Rondine,” featuring a stellar performance by soprano Angel Blue as Magda, the French courtesan. This season’s highlight includes the debut of tenor Jonathan Tetelman, portraying Ruggero, a young idealist whose love offers Magda a new path away from her lavish yet hollow lifestyle.

Under the baton of Maestro Speranza Scappucci, the production’s unique Art Deco aesthetics crafted by Nicolas Joël, whisk audiences away from the bustling nightlife of Paris to the serene elegance of the French Riviera.

This revival is a part of the FirstLight Home Care Classical Series, promising opera aficionados an unforgettable theatrical experience. As “La Rondine” unfolds its tragic yet beautiful tale of love and sacrifice, it continues to captivate and resonate with audiences, ensuring its place as a timeless work in the world of opera.
