CORONAVIRUS:All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and look like staying closed until March 2021 with the exception of a few, patchy, openings (and subsequent closures) towards the end of 2020. Some open-air, drive-in venues have been opened for periods and many shows are now streaming on-line. Sadly, some venues and shows may not survive. We are updating our listings as much as possible to reflect the changes as they are reported.

What is currently on at Opera Holland Park - Open Air Theatre (V203)

Gianni Schicchi

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.
Author Puccini (1918)
Lyrics Giovacchino Forzano
