About

Daniel Harding conducts two masterpieces of the Italian repertoire: Il Tabarro by Puccini (first part of the Trittico) and Don Carlo by Verdi (Acts III and IV).

Tosca, La Bohème, Madama Butterfly, Gianni Schicchi, etc. Each year, Puccini can be sure to have at least one of his works played in the most prestigious international venues. Not only was he a prolific author, he also knew how to give a universal meaning to the tragic issues he tackled, bringing new life to the Italian opera. Puccini gave a special place to theatre... without neglecting, of course, the melody! Indeed, his scores are some of the most brilliant of the operatic repertoire: "O mio babbino caro," "Vissi d'arte," "E lucevan le stelle," etc. The Trittico (The Triptych) was created in 1913, when Puccini deeply wanted to compose three one-act operas, complementary, and supposed to be played together. Il Tabarro, inspired by Didier Gold's play The Cloak, was the first part of the Triptych. Despite its expressiveness, Il Tabarro did not receive a warm welcome, and Gianni Schicchi became the most important work of this trilogy. Lucio Gallo and Barbara Frittoli will sing the tragic love of Michele and Giorgetta.
