About the opera Iris

Iris is an opera in three acts by Pietro Mascagni to an original Italian libretto by Luigi Illica. Its first performance was at the Teatro Costanzi in Rome on 22 November 1898.
The opera is through-composed and set in Japan during legendary times. (Mascagni's colleague and former roommate, Puccini, was present at the premiere; it is far from coincidental that his opera, Madama Butterfly, first presented in 1904 was also set in Japan. Puccini much admired the music, in particular Mascagni's orchestration, if not the drama: see Carner.)
