Gianni Schicchi
About the performance

Gianni Schicchi is the last part from a series of three one-act operas by Giacomo Puccini. It is the most famous (thanks to the well-known aria of Lauretta, the daughter of Gianni Schicchi, “O mio babbino caro”/” Oh my dear papa”) and the only comic opera by the composer.

It premiered at the Metropolitan Opera in New York on the 14th of September 1918 on the same evening as two other parts of the cycle: Il tabarro and Suor Angelica. This opera has always been staged more often and the leading part has been in the repertoire of the outstanding baritones: Giuseppe Taddei, Tito Gobbi, Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, Leo Nucci and many more.

Premiered on January 27, 2002.

Run with one-act opera Il Tabarro by Giacomo Puccini.

Libretto by Giovacchino Forzano based on Canto XXX from Dante’s Inferno

Synopsis

Florence, Italy, 1299.

The greedy relatives of the wealthy Buoso Donati discover that the deceased has left his fortune to the church. The young Rinuccio suggests that Gianni Schicchi, a shrewd, self-made man and the father of his girlfriend, Lauretta, can help them. Schicchi appears with his daughter. Disgusted by the hypocrisy and avarice of the aristocratic family, he is about to leave but persuaded to stay by Lauretta who proclaims her intention to marry Rinuccio. Reading the will, Schicchi devises a plan to impersonate the dead man. The relatives send for the notary and Schicchi, wearing Buoso’s nightshirt and cap, from his sickbed dictates a new will, in which he leaves the greater part of the estate, including the house they are in, to his “dear friend Gianni Schicchi.” The relatives are furious, and steal what they can from the house, chased out by Schicchi, who remains behind with Lauretta and Rinuccio. Turning to the audience, he points out how happy his fraud has made the young lovers and pleads that he not be judged too harshly.
