Opera in three acts by Puccini to a libretto by Giuseppe Adami. Sung in Italian.
Originally commissioned in 1913 as a German-language operetta,
La Rondine is set in Paris and on the French Riviera during the Second Empire. The narrative shows remarkable parallels with La Traviata, except that the heroine Magda, unlike Violetta, does not die in the end. Puccini described it as "a light sentimental opera with touches of comedy - but it's agreeable, limpid, easy to sing, with little waltz music and lively and fetching tunes - a sort of reaction against the repulsive music of today."
