The vocal students of the Music Department present Gianni Schicchi, the classic one-act opera by Giacomo Puccini, at 7:30 p.m., Tues., Nov.24, in Martin Hall.
In this comedic farce filled with greedy relatives, young love, and scheming galore, the Donati family attempts to reacquire the fortunes of their now-deceased uncle Buoso by allowing the eponymous Gianni Schicchi to do what he does best: fast talking and quick thinking.
Come and enjoy this hilarious opera, featuring alumni Ryan Keating '11 as Rinuccio, Andrew Gonçalves-Weliver '15 as Simone, and Janna R. McKinley '10 as Zita.
Directed by Professor Julie McCoy and Jennifer Carr, and accompanied by Marco Cuevas, this rollicking comedy is definitely not to be missed! Please join us for this free event located in Martin Hall.
