7:30pm: The Metropolitan Opera: La Rondine Goaded by a group of Austrian directors to compose a Viennese operetta in the style of Léhar and inspired in no small part by the recent success of Strauss’s Der Rosenkavalier (also on this week’s schedule), Puccini wrote his lightest opera as a concession to operagoers who like their nights out a bit breezier. The ending is still far from cheerful, but at least the central courtesan, impossibly in love with a debt-strapped playboy, doesn’t die. Puccini gussies up his tale with a chic setting—Paris and the French Riviera—and a menagerie of unforgettable tunes, including the swooning “Chi il bel sogno di Doretta,” set for both soprano and tenor.
