Part of: Spring Season

English Touring Opera Puccini’s one-act operas Il tabarro (directed by James Conway) and Gianni Schicchi (directed by Liam Steel) 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. Conducted by Michael Rosewell.

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.
