Description
La Rondine ("The Swallow") is a lesser-known Puccini work (except for its much-excerpted soprano aria "Chi il bel sogno di Doretta"); however the star seems to be rising for this Traviata-type opera, as the Met revived it in 2009 for Angela Gheorghiu and Roberto Alagna. This production is from the 2007 Puccini Festival in Torre del Lago, Italy.

"It contains some fine music, like the Act II quartet 'Bevo al tuo fresco sorriso,' which for sheer melodic beauty can rival any Puccini number…. But this production's worth does not rest solely on the uniqueness of its edition or on a couple of hit numbers. Indeed, Svetla Vassileva's portrayal of Magda is simply stunning, both vocally and dramatically. This Bulgarian soprano is a major star, no doubt. Russian-born Maya Dashuk also turns in fine work as Lisette…. Fabio Sartori as Ruggero is also excellent: his voice has great tonal appeal and his acting is fully convincing. The rest of the cast is strong too, and the conductor Alberto Veronesi leads the proceedings with judicious tempos and a fine sense for dramatic flow."—Classical Net
