Notes and Editorial Reviews

The dark, dangerous drama of Il tabarro… The heart-wrenching pathos of Suor Angelica… The merciless comedy (leavened with youthful romance) of Gianni Schicchi… Puccini’s scores for his triptych of one-act operas are as compelling for their subtlety as for their theatrical flair. Conducted with mastery by Sir Antonio Pappano, Il trittico is peopled by a magnificent cast that includes Angela Gheorghiu, Roberto Alagna, José van Dam, Cristina Gallardo-Domâs, Maria Guleghina and Neil Shicoff The dark, dangerous drama of Il tabarro… The heart-wrenching pathos of Suor Angelica… The merciless comedy (leavened with youthful romance) of Gianni Schicchi… Puccini’s scores for his triptych of one-act operas are as compelling for their subtlety as for their theatrical flair.
