Francesca da Rimini by Riccardo Zandonai( )

24 editions published between 1950 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 445 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The genesis of the story of Francesca da Rimini began with verses from Dante's Inferno, then expanded a few decades later by Boccaccio and finally in 1901, formed as a theatrical drama by Gabriele DAnnunzio who spun a film noir-ish tale with a fatefully flawed anti-heroine engaging in morally ambivalent actions during politically dark times under duress of fitful love. Sensing being able to capitalize on the irresistible lure the scandal had on a public both outraged and titillated, the librettist/producer Tito Ricordi commissioned the young Riccardo Zandonai, at the start of a highly promising career, to compose the music for this four act opera which had its premiere in 1914 and remains the one work Zandonai is noted for
