Il trittico audience reaction

21 June 2024

For the first time in Welsh National Opera’s history, Puccini’s epic trio of operas, Il trittico, takes to the stage. A co-production with Scottish Opera, this three-course operatic feast begins with a deadly love triangle, before exploring the devastating tale of a mother-turned-nun, and ends with a witty black comedy.

We’ve thoroughly enjoyed reading all the positive feedback we’ve received so far. Let’s find out what our audiences in Cardiff had to say.

Jo Vos - 3 amazing and different operas. Beautifully performed and played - I thoroughly enjoyed it, thanks.

Cathryn Sherrington - It was wonderful

Marigold Oakley - A very enjoyable and fascinating performance!

Meg John - Beautiful vocal & orchestral performances masterfully directed from the podium by Carlo Rizzi. My tears flowed at the end of Il tabarro and Suor Angelica only to be assuaged by the laughter elicited by Gianni Schicchi. Thank you to the WNO for another excellent evening.

Gary Holcombe - Was an amazing opening night. The sets, the vocals, the comedy and the orchestra were all amazing. Had a great evening.

Pauline Woolcock - Thoroughly enjoyable evening, wonderful voices, great to see Carlo Rizzi conducting the orchestra, and the sets were brilliant, well done to all those responsible for providing three different venues. And all done within a set time limit.

Roger Hart - It was fabulous

Carol Fry - It is a sensational production. I had so many delighted people in my section when ushering. They included a lady in her 60s at her first ever opera. She was almost speechless with wonder. It is a triumph.

Experience Il trittico for yourself as we return to Cardiff in September, tour to Llandudno, Plymouth and Southampton with a double-bill of Suor Angelica and Gianni Schicchiand to Oxford with our Il trittico in Concert.
