4/5. America. Given its popularity now, it's hard to believe that when Puccini's opera Madama
Butterfly opened in February 1904, the audience positively hated it. Domestic tragedy followed when Puccini's wife Elvira wrongly accused a young servant girl of having a liaison with her husband. Publicly denounced and hounded, the girl committed suicide. Puccini was unable to write for eight months but he eventually produced La Fanciulla de/ West, an opera stylistically very different from anything he'd previously conceived. When it opened in New York it was a resounding success. Donald Macleod looks at this period of mixed fortunes for the composer.

James Aitkens was born in Edinburgh in 1752, one of 12 children. He trained as a house painter but became an impassioned and violent supporter of the American Revolution: he tried to burn down Portsmouth Dockyard in December 1776 and started fires in Bristol. Scare stories gripped the nation, and George III offered a reward for his capture. Historian Jessica Warner tells China Mieville the story of John the Painter: the First Modern Terrorist.
