Sunday Express on Il tabarro/Gianni Schicchi on English Touring Opera

The Marriage of Figaro
By Mozart
Fri 11 May 7.45pm

During the course of one eventful day, Figaro and Susanna must overcome every obstacle put in their way by Count Almaviva and his cronies before they can finally be united as man and wife. Blanche McIntyre (Tosca) returns to direct this most warm-hearted of operas, equally acclaimed for its sublime music and huge sense of fun.

Il tabarro/Gianni Schicchi
By Puccini
Sat 12 May 7.45pm

Puccini’s one-act operas Il tabarro and Gianni Schicchi could hardly be more different: one is a moody romance ending in a grotesque murder on a barge in Paris, and the other is a sparkling comedy about a family inheritance in Florence. First performed in 2011 to great critical acclaim, this double bill shows Puccini at his finest as a master of the theatre that speaks to the heart.
