About OPERA: La Rondine
BRITISH YOUTH OPERA is a company that bridges college and conservatoire training with the opera profession for emerging singers, musicians and technical trainees. The culmination of its annual programme is two fully staged operas.
Puccini’s bittersweet romantic comedy La Rondine is set in Paris during the Belle Époque. Performed to music of exceptional lyrical beauty, it tells the story of two pairs of lovers as they deal with affairs of the heart, commitment and renunciation.
