Music by Pietro Mascagni
Sung in the original Italian with English titles projected over the stage
A warm and nostalgic romance set in the countryside, “L’amico Fritz” is Italian opera at its prettiest. Recalling the musical style of “La bohème” but without any deaths, the opera boasts a harvest of abundant melodies, including the beautiful Cherry Duet. You will hear why the title role was a favorite of Pavarotti.
