Puccini: Il Trittico

March 2023

Rossini: Cinderella

AdobeStock_137953422_edited.png

Everyone is familiar with the story of Cinderella, immortalized by the French author Charles Perrault. Yet this is not quite the story of the Rossini version of Cinderella. There are the wicked stepsisters, there is a wicked Stepfather and instead of a fairy godmother Rossini gives us a mysterious man who seems to have magical powers. The voices sparkle, flow forth and mingle in arias and ensembles punctuated with clever puns and witticisms: this is Rossini’s musical comedy at its finest which he wrote when he was only 24 in just three weeks. There is certainly some magic in that!

Sung in Italian.

In December of 1918, Giacomo Puccini, at the Metropolitan Opera,  he unveiled a new work with the company, a triptych of one-act operas, called Il Trittico: Il Tabarro (The Cloak) Suor Angelica (Sister Angelica) and Gianni Schicchi.  These three diverse operas of Puccini have a powerful unifying theme: the effect of death on those left living (the English word would be “triptych,” as in the three part altarpiece paintings of the Middle Ages). Each is told with a distinctive musical and linguistic language—the tragic and veristic Il Tabarro, the mystical and reflective Suor Angelica, and a masterful tale of comic retribution, Gianni Schicchi. These operas are easy for an audience to absorb and enjoy at first hearing, and thus are wonderful first operas for newcomers to the form in that they give the public a wide variety of styles in a single evening; for opera veterans, Il Trittico provides a unique architectural change in what it usually thought of as Italian opera. It was Puccini’s wish that the three operas always be performed together.
