Opera and classical-music supporters will adore Puccini’s bittersweet love story La Rondine, making a rare Met appearance at the Torch Theatre this April, with soprano Angel Blue starring as the sophisticated French courtesan Magda, opposite tenor Jonathan Tetelman as Ruggero.

Maestro Speranza Scappucci conducts Nicolas Joël’s Art Deco–inspired staging, which transports audiences from the heart of Parisian nightlife to a dreamy vision of the French Riviera, at the Torch Theatre in Milford Haven on Sunday, April 21.

Also in their Met debuts, soprano Emily Pogorelc and tenor Bekhzod Davronov complete the principal cast as Lisette and Prunier, with Speranza Scappucci on the podium to leada score that combines the charm of Viennese operetta with romance and heartbreak of Italian classics like La Bohème and La Traviata.

In a recorded broadcast from the Met stage, La Rondine is the eighth production featured in the 2023–24 The Met: Live in HD season. With a run time of nearly three hours, the opera is sung in Italian with subtitles.
