by GIORDANO, Umberto 1867-1948
Marcella, first performed at the Teatro Lirico in Milan on November 9, 1907 to a libretto by L. Stecchetti, H. Cain, and J. Adenis, is "a story of love and renunciation across the class barrier... Giordano handled the late Romantic, emotionally vehement idiom of the giovane scuola with ease and fluency, being particularly skilful in weaving into his scores elements of local and historical colour... His stage sense is always sure, and his vocal writing unfailingly effective." Julien Budden in Grove Music Online.. 1 page of a bifolium (ca. 136 x 179 mm). Dated Milano, January 26, 1909.
