Angela Gheorghiu and Roberto Alagna star in this 1996 live production of Puccini’s opera La Rondine, with Antonio Pappano conducting.

“From first to last, tenderly, often with a throb in the voice, Gheorghiu's vocal acting convinces you that Magda's are genuine, deep emotions, painful at the end, intensified by the ravishing beauty of her voice.” - Gramophone Magazine

“[Pappano is] so attentive to detail, and Puccini's gorgeous orchestral writing in this opera has never sounded so well as it does here...I've certainly heard no other recording that makes such an overwhelmingly persuasive case for this lovely opera...” - International Record Review

“An almost ideal account of Puccini's least-performed mature work, with both Alagna and Gheorghiu at their peak.” - BBC Music Magazine
