Angela Gheorghiu and Roberto Alagna star in the 2009 Metropolitan Opera production of Puccini’s La Rondine (The Swallow). This new production, directed by Nicholas Joël, was the company’s first staging of the opera in 70 years.

This elegant romance is the least-known work of the mature Giacomo Puccini. The story concerns a kept woman who defies convention to chase a dream of romantic love with an earnest, if naïve, young man. With dynamic soprano Angela Gheorghiu and French-born tenor Roberto Alagna performing the roles of Magda and Ruggero, this production blooms into its rightful place in the glorious Puccini canon.
