Gianni Schicchi and Pagliacci

Gianni Schicchi by Giacomo Puccini
and Pagliacci by Ruggero Leoncavallo

Enjoy a comedic romp through Gianni Schicci with a cunning con artist that tricks the greedy Donati family who try to gain control of their dying relative’s estate. Laugh and weep with Canio, the clown, over the tragedy of a star-crossed love triangle in Pagliacci. Both operas are full of gorgeous and well-known music, such as: O mio babbino caro and Vesti la giubba (the clown who cries behind his makeup).

Press Release to come.
