Three stories, three settings, three marvellous soundscapes … The impact is breathtaking!

Il trittico has been called Puccini’s greatest achievement. The last opera he completed, it is rarely performed in its entirety. When all three of its one-act operas are staged together, the experience is an emotional roller-coaster ride through everything opera can be.

Pacific Opera is thrilled to present the first Canadian production of this masterpiece in nearly 50 years.

The three operas of Il trittico (The Triptych)
  • Il tabarro (The Cloak)
    A noir thriller of infidelity and suspicion. Over the course of a single night, a marriage comes to a brutal end.
  • Suor Angelica (Sister Angelica)
    A lyric tragedy. In the confines of a convent, where all desire is considered a sin, a nun with a devastating secret struggles with anguish and guilt.
  • Gianni Schicchi
    A wicked black comedy. A family squabbling over an inheritance get their comeuppance in this zany tale of greed and skullduggery.
