Opera Chapman, in collaboration with The Chapman Orchestra, presents a double bill of Gianni Schicchiand Suor Angelica, two of Giacomo Puccini's beloved one-act operas. There's brilliant comedy and cunning deceit galore in Gianni Schicchi -- including "O mio babbino caro," one of the most popular arias in opera -- and solemn pathos tempered by the hope of eternal salvation in Suor Angelica. One of the greatest composers of Italian opera, Puccini created these gems for the Metropolitan Opera in 1918. Nearly 100 years later, it's clear they've withstood the test of time, continuing to move audiences worldwide to tears and laughter. Be among the lucky ones who get to witness the magic of these classics when they come to the stage of Orange County's Musco Center for the Arts.
