After the great success of the opera Urh, grof Celjski (Urlich, Count of Celje), composed by Viktor Parma (1858–1924) and premiered in 1885, the composer created Ksenija (1897), mostly remembered by the audience for its music, as its famous interlude became a genuine hit – or a Slovenian equivalent to the renowned operatic pieces from the late 19th century, composed by such great music writers as Mascagni and Puccini. Until the World War II it was regarded the most frequently performed Slovenian operatic piece beside the Gorenjski slavček (Nightingale of Gorenjska).

MADAME BUTTERFLY

by darjin01
Puccini claimed that he had poured his heart and soul into his creation of the opera Madame Butterfly. All his life he was referring to it as his best and most modern piece of work. The destiny of Japanese woman, who, failing to fulfil her desire of love stabs herself to death, had by all means deeply touched the composer, since his depiction of the famous story presents an outstanding fusion of his creative composing force and the main character's lyrical and heartbreaking psychological drama.
