Il tabarro / Suor Angelica
The essence of vintage Puccini in concentrated form. Il tabarro and Suor Angelica are the first two 'panels' in the composer's triptych of intense one-act operas, Il trittico.Il tabarro (The Cloak) is a darkly atmospheric thriller with sharply defined characters, about a wife who has taken a lover, driving her jealous husband to murderous despair.Suor Angelica focuses on one of the most heart-rending of human experiences. Angelica, punished by her family and confined to a convent, learns of the death of her child. But this darkness gives way to light in an opera filled with redemptive beauty.
