While listening to the Met’s Tosca with Sondra Radvanovsky and Roberto Alagna tonight, and after hearing La Fanciulla del West driving home from Wilkes-Barre Saturday, I was wondering which of Puccini’s works was considered his best–critically speaking. Which might be a different choice than your favorite, if you catch my drift.
What do you think? Which is Puccini’s best opera?
|Le Villi (The Willis or The Fairies)|
|Madama Butterfly (Madame Butterfly)|
|La Fanciulla del West (The Girl of the Golden West)|
|La Rondine (The Swallow)|
|Il Trittico (The Triptych) – Il Tabarro, Suor Angelica, Gianni Schicchi|
