5.0 out of 5 stars Great Puccini
A wonderful recording of my favourite Puccini opera (Il Tabarro) and excellent of Suor Angelica and Gianni Schicchi as well.

This review is from: Puccini: Il Trittico [DVD] [2001] (DVD)
Given that he was such a composer for the theatre, it has always surprised me that Puccini embarked on a project that requires an audience to sit through the experience of watching three such disparate one act operas in one evening.There is no denying that the music for Il Tabarro is highly evocative,the confrontation between Suor Angelica and the aunt from hell is musical drama at its best and that Gianni Schicchi remains one of the glories of Italian comic opera, however given the poor quality of the picture on this dvd and the old fashioned nature of the sets the whole occasion lacks fire. There is some glorious signing paricularly from Sass and Cappuccilli in Tabarro and Juan Pons in the title role of Schicchi, but Plowright as Angelica in her La Scala debut, lacks the ethereal vocal quality required for the role.
