The story is a tragic one: forced into marrying the son of the blind Barbarian King Archibaldo, young Fiora continues an affair with her lover Avito right under the nose of her obsessive father in law, which leads to tragic consequences. Musically the opera draws us into a luscious soundscape of which Puccini would have been proud. It is a thrilling score - epic, sweeping, imaginative and rich. Revival of the 2007 production Opera in three acts. Sung in Italian with English surtitles.
