Il Trittico

3 – 19 July 2024

One night, three very different operas: this operatic feast showcases Puccini at his best.

Desperation. Despair. Deception.

Il Trittico is an operatic treat: a rare chance to see three short operas in one night.

Love, lies and death permeate the gritty melodrama of Il Tabarro, the intimate tragedy of Suor Angelica and the surprising satire of Gianni Schicchi.

The audience is the winner, with a triple helping of Puccini’s sumptuous orchestra writing, famous arias and the witty, tight ensemble singing of the best comedies. 

We’ve brought together three outstanding Australian directors to tell these stories, plus exciting young conductor Lidiya Yankovskaya and a brilliant Australian cast.
