Giacomo Antonio Domenico Michele Secondo Maria Puccini

Giacomo Antonio Domenico Michele Secondo Maria Puccini (Composer)

Born: 22nd December 1858, Lucca

Died: 29th November 1924, Brussels

Nationality: Italian

Giacomo Puccini was an Italian composer known primarily for his operas. Regarded as the greatest and most successful proponent of Italian opera after Verdi, he was descended from a long line of composers, stemming to the late-Baroque era. Though his early work was firmly rooted in traditional late-19th-century Romantic Italian opera he later developed his work in the realistic verismo style, of which he became one of the leading exponents.

His most renowned works are La bohème (1896), Tosca (1900), Madama Butterfly (1904), and Turandot (1924), all of which are among the most frequently performed and recorded of all operas.
