"His operatic heroines of Tosca, Madama Butterfly and Mimì are what legends are made of – but so far little has been told about what – or more importantly who – inspired these passionate women of opera."

Puccini loved women. His operatic heroines of Tosca, Madama Butterfly and Mimì are what legends are made of – but so far little has been told about what – or more importantly who – inspired these passionate women of opera.

 

This one-woman-show is a hot-blooded hybrid of drama and operatic recital, and paints the lust, romance, jealousy and passion of Puccini’s real-life love affairs, and dramatically links his real-life women with the infamous “suffering heroines” portrayed in his opera masterpieces. Experience soprano Vanessa West sings some of the most beautiful arias ever composed by man.
