A trio of one-act operas of love and loss, Il trittico runs the gamut from high drama and heartbreaking tragedy to devilish black comedy and farce. Il tabarro (The Cloak) sees a wife trapped in a marriage she yearns to escape, Suor Angelica (Sister Angelica) an outsider forced into a life for which she has no vocation, and Gianni Schicchi a dysfunctional family caught in the snare of a shameless conman...
Puccini’s scores, including the favourite O mio babbino caro in Gianni Schicchi, each boast their own vivid sound world yet all three operas fit together into a truly satisfying whole.
Music Director Stuart Stratford conducts a world-class ensemble cast that features Roland Wood (Don Giovanni 2022 and Falstaff 2021), Sinéad Campbell-Wallace (The Puccini Collection 2021 and Tosca 2019), and Aled Hall (Falstaff 2021 and Tosca 2019) alongside Elgan Llŷr Thomas (A Midsummer Night’s Dream 2022), Francesca Chiejina, and internationally acclaimed Scottish mezzo-soprano Karen Cargill (Bluebeard’s Castle 2017).
With an earlier start time and a long second interval for dinner and drinks, Il trittico promises an opera event like no other and a rare chance to hear all three operas in one night as Puccini intended.
Sung in Italian with English supertitles
A new co-production with Welsh National Opera
