Music by Pietro Mascagni

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.
