Welsh National Opera: Il trittico

15, 18, 20 + 22 June 2024

Donald Gordon Theatre

Jealousy, entrapment, love, loss, sacrifice, farce, deceit and murder – all in one night.

Il trittico, Puccini’s triptych of one-act operas, is a smorgasbord of high emotions. 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.

Sung in Italian, with surtitles in English and Welsh
