La Rosiera, to a libretto by Gnecchi and Carlo Zangarini after Alfred de Musset, was first performed in Gera on February 12, 1927.
"... the three-act La Rosiera (1927) and Giuditta (1953)... confirmed the characteristics of [Gnecchi's] style, which combines modes and an often dissonant, post-Wagnerian chromatic harmony, creating unusual effects within classically conceived forms."
