Three one act operas

Il trittico (The Triptych) is the title to a collection of three one-act operas, Il
tabarro, Suor Angelica, and Gianni Schicchi, by Giacomo Puccini. The work
received its world premiere at the Metropolitan Opera on December 14, 1918.

Puccini intended that the three always be performed as a set, and indeed was
infuriated when they were separated, but today it is quite common to see only
one or two performed in an evening. One of the operas may also be paired with
another one-act opera by a different composer, an arrangement which Puccini
despised even more.

As a whole, Il trittico is quite balanced. Il tabarro, the first act, is very dark and
brooding, full of the violence and grit associated with verismo opera. Suor
Angelica, the second act, Puccini's personal favorite (and usually the one to be
omitted if only two of the acts are performed), is an uplifting tale of religious
redemption. Gianni Schicchi, the third act, is the most popular, a comedic farce
full of greed and conniving.
