One-act operas often find themselves in the "second-line" of our interest. After all – the smaller time footprint at their disposal can become the reason that they don’t feature dramatic storylines with a more serious scopes and messages. What's more, shorter operas should be connected to each other to create an entire opera evening. This is not a simple matter, being that the nature of each work – be it in terms of content or musical style is quite specific and linking two or more operas in one evening can become counterproductive. Thankfully there are exceptions: the sibling relationship between Mascagni’s Cavalleria rusticana and Leoncavallo’s Pagliacci (which are actually two-act works, but not full-length), i.e. works that are commonly premiered and listed together. And another one of the exceptions is the Puccini trio of one-act operas forming Il trittico. Puccini merges them together in his veristic, unmistakable compositional language and the composer’s unerring musical-dramatic intuition. It is thanks to this that all the preludes that inspired him acquire a deeper meaning, built on the phenomenal musical reflection of the characters and the relationships between them. To all this is added to by the refreshing genre contrast between these parts: when we first - Il tabarro - takes us into the world of the poor boatmen at the Paris Seine a tragic story of brutal murder out of jealousy plays out, in the second (Suor Angelica) audiences are led between the walls of a monastic cloister, within which a young noblewoman and the mother of an illegitimate child battle. The third piece - Gianni Schicchi –is the comical story of a dying wealthy gentleman around whom a vortex of heritage of entitled relatives spins.
