Read full description of the books:
Based on a play by David Belasco, Madama Butterfly concerns the disastrous results of a young American naval officer's marriage to a pretty geisha. Scorned by the La Scala audience at its 1904 premiere, the opera was revised by Puccini and afterwards met with a brilliant success that continues to this day. The heartrending story, combined with the composer's inspired use of musical color effects to evoke the exotic Japanese setting, make it one of the world's most popular operas. This authoritative vocal score—including all the vocal parts, a piano reduction of the full score, and the complete libretto in Italian and English—offers musicians an indispensable rehearsal aid and a fine addition to their score libraries.

Read information about the authorAn Italian composer, son of Michele Puccini and fifth in a line of composers from Lucca. After studying music with his uncle, Fortunato Magi, and with the director of the Insituto Musicale Pacini, Carlo Angeloni, he started his career at the age of fourteen as an organist of St. Martino and St. Michele, Lucca, and at other local churches. However, a performance of Verdi's "Aida" at Pisa in 1876 made such an impression on him he decided to become an opera composer. With a scholarship and financial support from an uncle, he was able to enter the Milan Conservatory in 1880. During his three years there, his chief teachers were Bazzini and Ponchielli.
Punccini's best known operas are: "Le villi" (1884), "Edgar" (1889), "Manon Lescaut" (1893), "La Boheme" (1896), "Tosca" (1900), "Madama Butterfly" (1904), "La fanciulla del West" (1910), "La rondine" (1917), "Il trittico", and "Turnadot" (1926).
During the composition of "Turnadot", he was diagnosed with throat cancer, and died after receiving treatment in Brussles. "Turnadot" was left unfinished, but was completed by Franco Alfano.
