Puccini, the Bard


Song recital with Hungarian and English surtitles

The great Italian composer’s art was about melody – he would have been a born song-composer had his dramaturgic talent not predestined him to compose music for stage. Although his oeuvre was not as rich in works as Verdi’s, he did compose songs in addition to his ten operas and a few symphonic pieces and church music. These were composed for special occasions, some were the fruits of his student years, while others were drafts for his later operas: in this case all the two dozen songs will be sung on the stage of the Eiffel Art Studios.
