Giacomo Puccini and Franz Lehár

Two very special friends

 

SCENES FROM KNOWN OPERAS AND OPERETTAS; SELF-PRODUCED

 

In 1905, 114 years after Mozart’s Magic Flute, Ferenc Lehár’s The Merry Widow was also premiered at the Theater an der Wien (the successor to the Schikaneder Theater), launching the so-called silver era of the Vienna operetta. This will be followed by The Count of Luxembourg , The Land of Smiles, The Tsarevich. Let’s say, he produces one pop song after another, it’s easy to think of Lippen schweigen, s`flüstern Geigen, Heut geh ich ins Maxim – all of which are among the most popular hits to date. Opposite Lehár is Giacomo Puccini, a chain smoker who loves fast cars and is one of the most famous Italian composers with only 12 operas. Composer of Tosca, Manon Lescaut, La bohème, etc. does not record any less pop hits, the only difference is that his stories always end tragically. Two different artists of opposite styles, celebrities of their age, who are linked in a friendly way.
