At The Opera, Puccini: Il Trittico, March 15, 2014


Listen Now:

Il trittico (The Triptych) is the title of a collection of three one-act operas, Il tabarro, Suor Angelica, and Gianni Schicchi, by Giacomo Puccini. The work received its world premiere at the Metropolitan Opera on December 14, 1918. Around 1904, Puccini first began planning a set of one-act operas, largely because of the success of Cavalleria rusticana. Originally, he planned to write each opera to reflect one of the parts of Dante's Divine Comedy. However, he eventually based only Gianni Schicchi on Dante's epic poem. This 1962 recording stars Renata Tebaldi, Mario Del Monaco and Robert Merrill. Lamberto Gardelli conducts.
