NZSM Opera Season
Suor Angelica & Gianni Schicchi
Experience a celebration of the enduring power of music...
Worlds collide with life-changing consequences in this double-bill of mini-masterpieces by Puccini. The operas are transported to the 1970's and set against the potent backdrop of the decade of decadence.
The operas feature internationally-acclaimed opera stars Margaret Medlyn as Suor Angelica’s icy Princess and Robert Tucker in Gianni Schicchi’s devilish title role alongside students from Te Kōkī – New Zealand School of Music. Director Jon Hunter is joined by designers Sean Coyle, Glenn Ashworth and Sarah Carswell with Kenneth Young conducting the NZSM orchestra.
