CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned re-opening time though it will not be before 1st June 2020 and is most likely to be September (according to some West End producers). Some shows have been cancelled, or closed early, but many are being rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with the changes - assume that anything posted for April and May is actually postponed or cancelled. Pantomimes are possible but a few venues and shows may not return and larger venues and tours are unlikely to re-appear before 2021.


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. Sung in Italian with English surtitles. Approx running time 2 hours 30 minutes (with L'Heure Espagnole). New Production

Performers Bryn Terfel (Gianni Schicchi), Dina Kuznetzova (Lauretta), Elena Zilio (Zita), Saimir Pirgu (Rinuccio), Jeffrey Lloyd Roberts (Gherardo), Joan Rodgers (Nella).
