Comedy and tragedy in two operas at theatre
TWO Italian operas are promising to raise the emotions in Hinckley.
A comedy and a tragic tale, from the repertoire of Giacomo Puccini, will be engaging audiences at the Concordia Theatre in Stockwell Head.
Gianni Schicchi tells the comic tale of a greedy family desparate to cash in from the will of a recently departed relative.
In contrast, Sister Angelica is a moving story about a young nun forced into a convent after a family scandal.
The two short operas are being performed as part of a new project from Stanley Opera.
They were originally part of a triptych of work by the Italian composer, which premiered in New York in 1918.
Gianni Schicchi is on Thursday October 12 and Sister Angelica on Friday October 13, both starting at 7.30pm.
A double-bill with both operas is taking place on Saturday October 14, at 7.30pm.
Tickets are £10 and are available from the theatre box office, by calling Hinckley 615005, on the Concordia Theatre website and on the door, from 7pm each night.
