Il trittico (spring 2011)

Giacomo Puccini

Il trittico is a powerful triple bill of single-act operas. Puccini always intended the three works to be performed together, even though they have no common theme. This evening also brings together three Finnish directors - Kaarina Lahti, Johanna Freundlich and Ville Saukkonen - each directing one of the three operas. 
 
Suor Angelica is the sentimental story of a woman who is abandoned by her family and flees to a convent, driven to desperation by the death of her illegitimate child. The dramatic Il tabarro is a cloak-and-dagger story fired by the jealousy of an upstaged husband. It is an interesting evocation of the soundscape of Paris at the turn of the 20th century. 
 
After these two tragic tales, Puccini turns to broad comedy in the story of the Renaissance trickster Gianni Schicchi, who manages to con the relatives of a recently deceased rich man out of their inheritance, not to speak of smoothing the path for young love along the way.
