English Touring Opera: Puccini, Il tabarro & Gianni Schicchi
Puccini: Il tabarro & Gianni Schicchi
Puccini’s one-act operas Il tabarro and Gianni Schicchi could hardly be more different: one is a moody romance ending in a grotesque murder on a barge in Paris, and the other is a sparkling comedy about a family inheritance in Florence. First performed in 2011 to great critical acclaim, this double bill shows Puccini at his finest as a master of the theatre that speaks to the heart.
Sung in Italian with English surtitles
Director: James Conway (Il tabarro) / Liam Steel (Gianni Schicchi)
