Puccini: Suor Angelica & Gianni Schicchi
Synopsis
Puccini's emotional and comic roller coaster double bill

In both Suor Angelica and Gianni Schicchi Puccini takes us on a thrilling emotional roller coaster of a ride through two very contrasting cautionary tales about greed and moral hypocrisy.

Suor Angelica is a tragic psychodrama set in a convent where a young nun is serving penance for conceiving an illegitimate child and has to do battle not just with the moral superiority of the church and her family but also with her own conscience.

Gianni Schicchi is a frantic farce (and Puccini’s only comic opera) about a family that tries to alter a large inheritance to their favour. It is fabulously funny, skilfully constructed and is commonly regarded as Puccini’s miniature masterpiece.

In these compelling condensed pieces Puccini packs three acts of emotion and drama into a single opera and both feature Puccini’s famous trademark – a knockout aria for the heroine: Senza mamma (Motherless) in Suor Angelica and the universally famous O mio babbino caro (O my beloved Father) in Gianni Schicchi.

This year these two operas celebrate their 99th anniversary and yet their inspired music and high octane drama remain both fresh and relevant today as you will see in this beautiful new production for the Academy.
