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.
Wed 30 May, 6.30pm, Seminar Room A
Free to Il Tabarro & Gianni Schicchi ticket holders.
Running time: 2 hours 10 minutes (including interval)
