About the Show/Event
Information for Gianni Schicchi at The King's Head Theatre, Inner London (Opera or Operetta). Puccini's only comic opera. The title character is an historical figure mentioned in Dante's The Inferno. Puccini's scheming, comic subverter, Gianni Schicchi, does leave some hope for the future. Whilst his resourcefulness and cunning at times appear to have suspect motivations, Gianni Schicchi assures the happiness of the lovers, his daughter Lauretta, and Rinuccio. Puccini's comic score includes some of his most dexterous and brilliant writing. Lunchbreak Opera presents a new production of this classic opera in a new arrangement and English translation.
