One Fine Day
The Life and Music of Giacomo Puccini
Devised by Paul Drayton
Narrated by John Nettles
with Tenor DAVID WEBB and Soloists & Chorus of Duchy Opera

Puccini unleashed a volcanic explosion of operatic passion that shook the musical world to its core. Audience reactions ranged from revulsion to ridicule. After the passage of nearly a century, it has become clear that some of the tragedy we find in Puccini’s operas reflects his own rather tempestuous life. Throughout his career he felt he was hunting (in vain) for the one perfect operatic story. Perhaps, without knowing it, he was already living it.

John Nettles is the Narrator of this fascinating story, illustrated by arias and choruses sung in English and Italian.
