This week on Sunday Night at The Opera
Gianna Schicchi

Who doesn’t love a good April Fool’s joke? But did you know that Gianni Schicchi, Puccini’s one act comedy from his triptych, is pretty much just that? Schicchi, a lawyer, is called in by the Donati family, whose recently deceased patriarch has left all his money to a monastery. Schicchi, at the insistence of his daughter who loves the young Donati boy, uses his wiles to make sure he gets the property instead.

Tune in to Sunday Night at the Opera this Sunday at 9:00 pm as Alexa Petrenko delves deeper into Puccini’s Gianni Schicchi
