CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 but restrictions were lifted on 19th July 2021 with venues free to run shows to full capacity audiences after that though there are still issues with company members being forced to self-isolate on being 'pinged'. In September it is possible that a COVID vaccination certificate (or exemption) may be mandated for entry. Please note that iUKTDb archive listings between March 2020 and July 2021 may not be accurate as we did not receive details of all rescheduled and cancelled shows.
Three one-act operas tell contrasting stories of jealousy and murder, loss and suicide, romance and cheerful trickery. Puccini's Il trittico
consists of three one-act, contrasting pieces. The first opera Il tabarro (The Cloak), is set on a barge on the Seine, and explores an unusually dark setting of a tragedy which ends in violence and brutality, while Suor Angelica looks at the themes of sin, redemption and motherhood within a repressive religious life. The triptych ends with Gianni Schicchi which sets the story of a clever rogue and a greedy Florentine family in the 1950s. Il trittico has not been presented in full by The Royal Opera since 1965.
