Step into the captivating world of opera with the OPERA 101 concert series, proudly presented by Lirica Arts, and join us in a mesmerizing journey through the rich tapestry of Western opera, designed to ignite curiosity and deepen your appreciation for this timeless art form.


In the second instalment of this concert series, Puccini – A Life in 7 Women, speaker Shridar Mani will once again guide us through the mastery of Puccini’s music through the exploration of the lives of seven tragic female figures and the recurring theme of “self-sacrifice” in his operas. From the poignant tragedy of Madama Butterfly, where love clashes with cultural divides; to passion and murder in the life of opera diva Floria Tosca; from a destiny straddled between love and material wealth in Manon Lescaut; to the heartrending and inevitable loss of love in Mimi’s death portrayed in La Boheme - each Puccini story offers a glimpse into the frailties of the human condition.


Puccini- A Life in 7 Women will feature Japanese star soprano Mako Nishimoto, together with Korean soprano Renata Hann, Singapore baritone Martin Ng, and tenor Shaun Lee.


Prepare to be enraptured by the intricate emotions and timeless tales that have captivated audiences for generations. Don’t miss this extraordinary opportunity to embark on a musical odyssey unlike any other!
