An encore performance of Pucciniâs La Rondine will be shown in cinemas on Wednesday, June 25, 2014, at 7:00 p.m. in all time zones. Pucciniâs achingly beautiful score charmingly conveys the plight of Magda (the âswallowâ of the title), who unexpectedly finds true love with the handsome young Ruggero. But their idyllic life comes to a premature end as she is haunted by the fear that her checkered past will ruin his future. Opera stars Angela Gheorghiu and Roberto Alagna portray Pucciniâs star-crossed lovers. Nicholas JoÃ«lâs production features elegant and sophisticated art-deco sets that contribute to the dazzling stage picture.
