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.
"A farcical riot." - ★★★★ The Telegraph
"So stylishly delivered." - ★★★★ The Times
Sung in Italian with English surtitles.
There’s one thing about your bed. It’s your very own bed. Except somebody else seems to think it’s their bed too. And then the bed itself has its own ideas. And when things get scary in the middle of the night it whisks you off to meet the very things you’re frightened of. Thank goodness the bed has some friends at the end of the journey.
