The Opera
Zazà is based on a popular 1898 play by Pierre Berton and Charles Simon. The play received many adaptations in the years following its premiere at the Théâtre de Vaudeville in Paris. Leoncavallo, an innovator of the verismo movement gained his fame through his great success Pagliacci. He later adapted Zazà in 1900. As usual with his operas, Leoncavallo wrote his own libretto. Zazà was a popular hit with a spot in the repertory until about the 1920s.

The Plot
Zazà is the tale of a popular music hall singer in St. Etienne, France who, after falling for the handsome patron Milio Dufresne, begins an intensely passionate relationship with him. Later, her world is turned upside down when she discovers that not only is Milio married, but he also has a young daughter. In the final act, Zazà’s own childhood trauma of growing up fatherless battles with her attachment to Milio and deep fear of losing him.
