When Giacomo Puccini received an offer from Vienna 'to write an opera yes: similar to Der Rosenkavalier, only more entertaining and more organic,' he replied, 'An operetta, that for me is out of the question.' Two suggestions were submitted to him from Vienna, and he selected La rondine (The Swallow) for his work. The three-act commedia lirica premiered in Monte Carlo in 1917, and three years later it made its way to the Volksoper in Vienna.
