Il tabarro

1 May 2016 – LSO St. Luke’s

Semi-staged performance

The first of Puccini’s Il trittico, Il tabarro is set on the canals of Paris and tells a tale of love, adultery and murder. The composer’s penultimate opera, Puccini’s music is at its masterful best and is an excellent vehicle for six up-and-coming singers to experience main roles in a major repertory opera with a full symphony orchestra.
