Suor Angelica and Gianni Schicchi: Puccini Opera Double Bill
A drama of redemption. A comedy of deceit. A nun seeks eternal salvation for her mortal sin while a cunning con artist seeks worldly riches in this double-bill of one-act operas by the great Italian composer, Giacomo Puccini -- Suor Angelica and Gianni Schicchi, presented by Opera San Jose. Part of the trio of operas known as Il trittico (the Triptych), these two contrasting motifs and paired for a night of tender sentiment and laughter with all the elements of Puccini's musical genius, including the beautiful aria, 'O mio babbino caro.'
