Giacomo Puccini



Giacomo Puccini (1858-1924) was an Italian composer primarily known for his operas. Regarded as one of the leading figures of operatic realism (or "verismo" in Italian), he began his journey in traditional 19th-century Romantic Italian opera. Later on, he developed his own style and composed a number of much-acclaimed operas, including Madama Butterly (1904), La Boheme (1896) and more works that are still performed frequently worldwide.
