Acts I and II of Puccini’s Il Trittico. Il Tabarro (The Cloak), a dark drama set on the banks of the Seine, is Puccini at his most verismo. This tale of love, loss, adultery and murder — coupled with some of Puccini’s most stunning vocal writing — is not to be missed. Suor Angelica tells the story of a young noblewoman forced to enter the convent after a youthful indiscretion that led to the birth of an illegitimate child. Tragedy, death and redemption on the landscape of Puccini’s lush orchestration.
Soprano Eleni Calenos takes on both demanding roles of Giorgetta and Suor Angelica, with Matthew Vickers as Luigi, and Grant Youngblood as Michele. OperaDelaware’s newly appointed Music Director, Anthony Barrese, will conduct, and Crystal Manich will direct. Featuring the OperaDelaware Orchestra and Chorus.
Sung in Italian, with English Supertitles.
