Under the baton of Antonio Pappano and staged by the ever-inventive Richard Jones, Il Tabarro intensely evokes 1930s French cinema, Suor Angelica brings a heart-wrenching central performance from Ermonela Jaho, and Gianni Schicchi rounds off events in a suitably riotous fashion.

The acclaimed cast includes Eva-Maria Westbroek, Ermonela Jaho, Lucio Gallo, Elena Zilio and rising star Francesco Demuro in these three one-act works, which were broadcast on BBC Radio 3 and went to cinemas world-wide in February 2012.

“A glorious and rewarding evening…The Royal Opera and its audiences could scarcely have hoped for a stronger opening to the season.”
– Opera Magazine

History

Il Trittico

Il Trittico (TheTriptych ) is the title of a collection of three one-act operas—  ll tabarro, Suor angelica and Gianni Schicchi by Giacomo Puccini. Each deals with the concealment of a death.

ll tabarro, set on a barge on the Seine in Paris around 1910 is a dark and brooding piece full of the violence and grit associated with verismo opera.

Suor angelica, Puccini's personal favorite, takes place at a convent near Siena in the latter part of the 17th century. It is an uplifting tale of religious redemption.

Gianni Schicchi, the third and most popular opera of the three is a farce full of greed and conniving set in Florence in 1299.

Il Trittico received its world premiere at the Metropolitan Opera on December 14, 1918. On April 20, 2007, a critically acclaimed production opened at the Met. The 2018/2019 season marked the centennial of the work’s world premiere at the Met.
