The great world of ordinary people in Puccini’s opera, portraying the heart of a character
with music
This is a brief introduction to Puccini’s opera creation in three periods. Puccini
wrote more than a dozen of operas in his life, and this paper illustrates the three periods based on
the time and achievements of the creation.
The first period of opera creation is Le Villi, Edgar, Manon Lescaut. Puccini was
at a loss because both his “Le Villi” and “Edgar” performances were not well received.
However, Manon Lescau was successful. The second period of opera creation included La
Boheme, Tosca, Madame Butterfly. They have all performed well over the years. The “Vissi
d’arte, “” Mi Chiamano Mimi,” and “Un Bel Di” are some of the most famous songs of those
three works. They are preserved on the international opera stage. They are also sung by students
majoring in vocal music. Puccini is arguably one of the most talented opera performers, and he
has achieved worldwide recognition due to his great shills and creative talent. The third period of
opera creation includes La Fancilla Del West, I Trittico (Gianni Schicchi), Il Tabaro (Suor
Angelica), Turandot, and so much more. This period represents the time during which Puccini
creates the most distinct musical styles from the other ones.
Since I am singing Aria in Puccini’s opera this semester, I would like to delve into
it. This would help me perform and understand the meaning of the songs. Since the cultures of
Europe and Asia are different from each other, I must master it well enough to perform these
operas and art songs better.


As much as there are 12 works in total, all of them are classic. The first one
portrays the inner heart of a character with more delicate music. Generally, Puccini’s opera
focuses on the application of music to illustrate the psychology of the characters and digs into the
deep contrast of their innermost feelings. Puccini especially prefers to capture the state of
emotions of the characters’ instant change. He does this through the delicate music with rich
forms and styles. His opera is much closer to the heart of the characters and is responsible for
touching the inner feelings of the audience. Additionally, he makes it easier for people to follow
his music in a soul-stirring melody.
Puccini considers the life of ordinary characters as the creative theme. By looking
through his opera works, it is discovered that the theme of reflecting ordinary characters is a key
feature of his opera. For example,” La Boheme “describes the living conditions of a group of
poor young artists living in the Latin region on both sides of the Seine in Paris;” Madame
Butterfly” is a sad little woman who is infatuated and faithful to make great sacrifices for love;
“Tosca” depicts the tragic story of Tuscan, a lovestruck songstress. Her jealousy, humbleness,
and helpless decision in the opera all showed that she was as ordinary as most women. “Gianni
Schicchi” is also the story of an ordinary figure in a normal family.
