The Evolution of the Ingénue: Puccini

All tickets are sold out!

Wednesday, March 23, 2022 2:00 PM

The premieres of Puccini’s Gianni Schicchi and Turandot were almost ten years apart, and arias from both ingénues, of both operas, have become some of the most popular. Both scores contain elements of Puccini’s modern harmonic dissonance with lyrical passages. Puccini understood how to depict young submissive women with realistic vocal lush and passion.
