ALFREDO CATALANI (1854 - 1893)
Occupying a position of importance in Italian opera before the rise to fame of Puccini, Alfredo Catalani is now chiefly remembered for one opera, La Wally.
Catalani’s opera La Wally, first staged at La Scala Milan in 1892, is set in Switzerland and makes use of local colour from its village setting.
