Broadcast Live from The Met in HD
Magda is a courtesan in high society Paris and mistress of wealthy Rambaldo, but she dreams of true love. At a party, the poet Prunier reads her palm and predicts that, like the swallow, she will travel south looking for happiness. When a young stranger, Ruggero, arrives in the city, Magda decides to risk it all, disguising herself as a shop girl ‘Paulette’ and following him to the nightclub Bullier’s…
There, the pair fall in love, and decide to run away together to the south of France. Life is blissful, but Magda’s past casts a shadow. Ruggero does not know who she really is, and her reputation would cause his social disgrace… will the truth come out?
