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.

    Why bother to run the credits when they move so fast its impossible to read them?Knowing the cast ,especially,is important to newcomers and long -time opera fans alike.

  • Farnham Lefferts

    Please tell me who the performers were in Il Trittico. I can’t find the cast in the website and they are not listed in the Program Guide. The performance was excellent. Thank you.

  • Old Nick

    Yeah, it would be nice to know who’s singing what.

    There’s a name for those who do this to an audience,
    but I can’t think of it now.

    Thanks anyway.

    I agree with all the previous comments. I came here looking for the cast after watching Il Trittico on TV this afternoon and enjoying it immensely. No luck. After Googling, I did manage to find it (only the principals) at the Opera News site – http://www.metoperafamily.org/operanews/issue/article.aspx?id=2068&issueID=86

    Come on, Channel 13, those of us who are interested in singing really do want to know who it is we’re listening to. Not only that, but the performers deserve to be recognized for their efforts – and not just the more famous, but all of them.
