Arthaus Musik devotes this exclusive special edition to the great Italian composer Giacomo Puccini (1858-1924), combining his complete operatic work in a lavish box set (including a book with more than 100 pages and previously unreleased archive material). Like no other, Puccini was able to convey drama and emotions to the audience through his music in a haunting and direct way, creating unique characters and becoming one of the best-loved and most performed opera composers. From Puccini’s rarely played early works “Le Villi” and “Edgar”, his first international successes “Manon Lescaut”, “La Bohème”, “Tosca” and “Madama Butterfly” through to his later operas “La fanciulla del West”, “La Rondine”, the three one-act operas of “Il Trittico” and his last, unfinished drama “Turandot”, all of his stage works are included in this lavish compilation. The exquisite performances were recorded at renowned opera houses such as the Milan Scala, the Vienna State Opera, the San Francisco Opera as well as the Puccini Festival in Torre del Lago and the Arena di Verona. Top-class opera stars, amongst them José Cura, Mirella Freni, Maria Guleghina and Luciano Pavarotti as well as distinguished conductors as Lorin Maazel, Riccardo Muti and Carlo Rizzi provide artistic highlights.
