The best things come in threes

Buckle up as Puccini’s trio of one-act operas, Il trittico, takes you on an unforgettable rollercoaster of high emotion, intense drama, and black comedy. Il tabarro (The Cloak) gazes upon an unhappy marriage with murderous consequences, Suor Angelica (Sister Angelica) follows a nun’s sacrifice and familial yearning when sent to a convent to repent her sins, and Gianni Schicchi is full of deception and greed as a family dispute over a missing will.  

Sublime music, including much-loved O mio babbino caro, contrasts and complements in equal measure in this three-course operatic feast. Directed by internationally renowned Director, Sir David McVicar (WNO’s La traviata), Il trittico offers a rare opportunity to enjoy all three operas in one night as Puccini intended.
