Money buys happiness but not true love for Magda, the heroine of Puccini’s comic opera. Abandoning her lavish life with a rich banker for the affection of a poor young student, she realizes, heartbroken, that she is unworthy of his marriage proposal. Evocative waltzes and glowing melodies enliven Puccini’s elegant score.

Fully staged production with the Curtis Symphony Orchestra, sung in Italian with English supertitles
