G. PUCCINI: Il TritticoIl Tabarro, Suor Angelica & Gianni Schicchi

Following renovations to the National Theatre, the NSO returns to this venue for its annual opera offering. This year the composer is Puccini, one of Maestro Lü’s favorites. Three short operas, each about an hour in duration – one comedy and two tragedies – make up the collection known as Il Trittico, first performed in 1918 in New York. Each is a little masterpiece unto itself. Il Tabarro (The Cloak) is a dark and disturbing story of illicit love, passion, cruelty, and murder. Suor Angelica (Sister Angelica) is a less violent (it has an all-female cast) but equally disturbing account of a daughter of a nobleman who has entered a nunnery to expiate her sin of being an unwed mother. It’s a sad tale, but it has a happy ending. There are many great tragedies in the operatic repertory, but few great comedies. Gianni Schicchi is one of them. What a rascal and a rogue this guy is! But you gotta love him! James Robinson, Artistic Director of Opera Theater of St. Louis and one of the world’s most sought-after directors, brings his talent to bear on the production.

※Overall length of the performance is about three hours and forty minutes (incl. two intervals)
