Giacomo Puccini (1858-1924). Descended from a family of forgotten composers, Giacomo Puccini wrote his first successful opera while still a student at the Milan Conservatory. Within fifteen years, he had composed a long string of masterworks, including Manon Lescaut, La Bohиme, Tosca, and Madama Butterfly. Puccini died of cancer before completing his final opera, Turandot.
