Description

A new two act play from award-winning playwright David Slattery-Christy. Exploring the stormy relationship between opera composer Giacomo Puccini and his wife Elvira. Set in their villa at Torre Del Lago, Italy, in 1901 to 1909, the play unravels their emotional life and also how it mirrored the tragic opera plots he composed during this period including Madama Butterfly and The Girl of the Golden West. The play looks at the complex relationship between them and how it survived numerous affairs, irrational jealousy, and Elvira's slanderous accusations that ended in a tragic suicide.show more
