English Touring Opera

Il Tabarro and Gianni Schicchi

Double Bill Buxton Opera Housebutton--dates-and-timesDates & Times

Puccini’s one-act operas Il tabarro and Gianni Schicchi could hardly be more different. 

One is a moody romance ending in a grotesque murder on a barge in Paris, and the other is a sparkling comedy about a family inheritance in Florence. First performed in 2011 to great critical acclaim, this double bill shows Puccini at his finest as a master of the theatre that speaks to the heart.

Sung in Italian with English surtitles
