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.
For one night only, this concert performance brings together wonderful guest singers with the internationally acclaimed WNO Chorus and Orchestra for a truly special evening at New Theatre Oxford.
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 the much-loved ‘O mio babbino caro’, contrasts and complements in equal measure. Revel in an extraordinary evening where emotions soar and the magic of Puccini’s masterpieces come to life on the concert stage.
Conductor Alexander Joel.
Sung in Italian, with English surtitles.
