Il trittico DVD nominated for BBC Music Magazine Award
Award to be decided by public vote.
The DVD release of Richard Jones’s Royal Opera production of Puccini’s Il trittico has been nominated for a prestigious BBC Music Magazine Award, to be decided by public vote.
The Olivier-nominated production, features a triptych of emotionally panoramic one act operas – Il tabarro, Suor Angelica and Gianni Schicchi. The trio were first performed together on the same bill at Covent Garden in September 2011.
Of the DVD release, BBC Music Magazine said:
‘We so rarely see Puccini’s whole triptych: here are all three operas in vivid and memorable productions by Richard Jones. Suor Angelica, the most challenging, is genuinely moving rather than sentimental with Ermonela Jaho powerful as Angelica; Il tabarro is a dramatic whirlwind with Eva-Maria Westbroek a convincing Giorgetta and Lucio Gallo blazing ferociously as Michele. He returns for a deliriously funny 1950s Gianni Schicchi.’
