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 to August is actually postponed or cancelled. It now looks likely that little will return till 2021.
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.
