Descriptions Il Trittico: The Royal Opera
The Olivier-nominated Royal Opera production featuring a trio of one-act Puccini operas was first performed together on the same bill at Covent Garden in September 2011, and was acclaimed by the Telegraph as “an operatic treat… three hours of gorgeous music that allows big voices to let emotion rip” and by the Evening Standard as “a triumphant vindication of the social awareness and dramatic power of Puccini’s triptych”. The trio of operas offers a panorama of emotions, with the dark and foreboding Il tabarro and comic Gianni Schicchi bookending a heart-wrenching Suor Angelica.
