      A Commedia lirica in three acts. Text by Giuseppe Adami after a libretto by A.M. Willner & Heinz Reichert. First performance: Monte Carlo; Theatre de l'Opera, March 27, 1917.

      Performed in Italian with English supertitles above the stage

      Puccini pays tribute to the glittering world of operetta with this beautiful score. The sparkle & glamour of Paris's Banquet Years provide the glorious backdrop for this romantic tale of love won & lost. Fans of last season's La Boheme won't want to miss this rarely-performed operatic jewel.

      In 1973, early critics from the national press compared our fledgling company to the flight of the Swallow (La Rondine) of the title and since then, this particular opera holds very special meaning to Des Moines Metro Opera, making it a natural part of our 40th Anniversary season.
