"The temptations of the exotic and the realization of true love end in tragedy in Puccini's Edgar. First performed in 1889, Edgar was Puccini's second opera commissioned by his publisher, Ricordi. The libretto is a medievalist phantasmagoria dealing with a Flemish knight torn between love for virtuous Fidelia, and erotic enslavement to Tigrana."--Container

"Le villi (The willis), signifying the ghosts of maidens deserted by their lovers, is the title of this two-act opera by Puccini. The libretto is based on the Central European legend of the willis. It was first produced on May 31, 1884 in Dal Verme Theatre, Milan, after it had been rejected in a prize competition at the Milan Conservatory, but revised to two-acts by the composer with the aid of Boito. It was Puccini's first work for the lyric stage."--Container
