(Puccini: La rondine). Bar. A rich Parisian banker, in love with Magda de Civry. He showers her with jewellery but Magda makes it clear to him that she is looking for true love such as she once experienced when younger. While he is at Magda's salon, he is visited by the son of an old friend—his name is Ruggero. It soon becomes clear to Rambaldo that Magda has fallen in love with Ruggero. Although he lets it be known that he is willing to take her back, Magda is not interested. Created (1917) by Gustave Huberdeau.
