About this product
- DescriptionWith works such as La Boheme and Madame Butterfly Giacomo Puccini (1858-1924) created some of the world's most popular and widely performed operas.

In this powerful biography, Conrad Wilson examines this great composer's works and the ways in which they were influenced by his many relationships with women and his contradictory personality.
