Operas are full of roses, and Opera Garden explores a number of them, since no garden is complete without roses. The rose which is the subject of this article comes from a little-known opera by Umberto Giordano. Giordano is best known for his two great operas Andrea Chénier and Fedora but he wrote several more, and there are now recordings of most of them available, so the adventurous opera enthusiast can seek out some unjustly neglected works with powerful stories and wonderful music. Giordano was a contemporary of Puccini, and his works are in the same verismo style.
