“Girardi offers the perfect complement to Phillips-Matz’s book; he concentrates on the music rather than the life….each chapter is devoted to a single opera. Each chapter begins with enough biographical material to set the opera in the context of Puccini’s life and each includes an in-depth analysis of the music and the drama of the opera.”

- Charles H. Parsons, AMERICAN RECORD GUIDE, Sept./Oct., 2003
