Jealousy, murder, suicide, religious rapture, intrigue, young love! No, it isn’t a soap opera — it’s Puccini’s triple-bill of one-act operas, IL TRITTICO. This new production by Broadway luminary (and Tony Award-winner) Jack O’Brien and a team of leading theater designers showcases the amazing technical resources of the Met stage as well as a brilliant ensemble cast, not to mention Puccini at his most hauntingly lyrical and dramatic. The Met’s celebrated music director, James Levine, conducts.
IL TRITTICO airs for SundayArts June 22, 2008.
