Gianni Schicchi and Suor Angelica > Gianni Schicchi

Performed with Suor Angelica as a Puccini Double Bill in the Fall of 2003 by the University of Illinois School of Music,
directed by Nicholas DiVirgilio.

The Plot: The family's rich relation has just died and left all his money to the monks- the only man who could fix this is Gianni Schicchi. While he's at it, (impersonating a dead man and rewriting his will), he'll also make sure his daughter Lauretta can be with her true love, Rinuccio.
