Sensitive and sensual women, all strong and vital, often hopelessly committed to self-sacrifice: a female kaleidoscope emerges from the catalogue of Giacomo Puccini’s operas. In each title, the personality of a different heroine unfolds as she meets the fate that the Maestro and his librettists have devised for her. These captivating stories now come to life through the narration of a talented actress, Laura Morante: Tosca, charming, haughty and jealous, ready to take extreme measures against the man who tried to violate her dignity; the mysterious Turandot, a prisoner of her own emotions, denying herself the joys of love; Manon, torn between conflicting feelings, from the most contagious joy to obscure vulnerability; and finally the fragile Butterfly, the victim of an unrealistic dream. Their characters and personalities are, of course, enhanced by Puccini’s music.
