Opera
Faulkner Performing Arts Center
Friday, Nov 18, 2022 at 7:30 PM (CT) to Friday, Nov 18, 2022 at 9:00 PM (CT)

Giacomo Puccini's comic masterpiece Gianni Schicchi was inspired by Dante's Inferno, which tells the story of Gianni Schicchi de' Cavalcanti, the Florentine trickster who cheated the wealthy Buoso Donati out of his fortune and subsequently sent to the 8th circle of Hell for his crimes. In Puccini's telling, Buoso's extended family is equally interested in acquiring his money. As for Gianni Schicchi, he has a more noble purpose for Buoso's money: to provide a dowry for his daughter Lauretta, who is in love with Rinuccio, the one member of the Donati family who is pure of heart and who sees the Schicchi family as equals despite their family's lower social status.

The opera will be sung in Italian with the English translation projected above the stage.
