Italy continued to produce great operas during the 20th century. One of its most remarkable composers conceived two highly dramatic short titles. From Saint-Exupéry’s pilot experience, narrated in Volo di Notte, to the cruelties of l´Isle Adam in Il Prigioniero, Dallapicola exhibits his gifts as a composer trained in the avant-garde era.
