Musical (1986)

Musique: Giacomo Puccini
Livret: Robin Ray
Production à la création:

The Life story of the opera composer. Puccini, drawing parallels between the composer and his works. The show imagines Puccini and his friends as models for “La Boheme” -high-spirited young men living in poverty while they scribble and paint in search of art and fame. Then it turns sour with Puccini’s tortured relationship with his common-law wife, Elvira. Rapidly jealous of his affairs with young women, she causes a domestic tragedy leading their maid to kill herself. However, he remains irrevocably linked to Elvira until his death from throat cancer.

Commentaires : Apart from Lewis Fiander as Puccini, all the other performers played several roles each and also sang a number of arias accompanied by a seven piece orchestra. They were actors, not opera singers, and the end results were a little worrying to most critics. No one was quite sure at whom this show was aimed: opera enthusiasts hated what was being done to the music, non-opera buffs resented the story being interrupted with disconnected arias. It closed within a month.
