story

 

Giacomo Antonio Domenico Michele Secondo Maria Puccini; (22 December 1858 – 29 November 1924) was an Italian composer whose operas are among the important operas played as standards.

 

Puccini has been called “the greatest composer of Italian opera after Verdi”. While his early work was rooted in traditional late-19th-century romantic Italian opera, he successfully developed his work in the realistic verismo style, of which he became one of the leading exponents.
