Alphonse Karr's short story "Les Willis" serves as the inspiration for this splendid two-act opera by Giacomo Puccini. The celebrated composer's first work for the stage─originally rejected in competition as a one-act piece─concerns the engagement of Roberto and Anna, whose celebration is interrupted by Roberto's disappearance and his enchantment by a fairy, which leads to tragic consequences. Albert Montserrat, Halla Margret star. 68 min. Soundtrack: Italian Dolby Digital stereo; Subtitles: English. In Italian with English subtitles.
