Maryland Lyric Opera Presents Puccini's Il Tabarro & Gianni Schicchi

MDLO has made the difficult decision to postpone the April 1, 2020 double bill performance of Puccini's Il Tabarro & Gianni Schicchi.  We depend on and have a deep commitment to an artistic and creative team who must travel to be with us and realize we cannot ask those colleagues to put themselves at risk in the midst of the current pandemic.  MDLO is investigating possibilities to reschedule these performances.  For our patrons who have already purchased their tickets for the April 1 performance, MDLO will offer a full refund through the Strathmore Ticket Office.


MDLO presents ONE PERFORMANCE ONLY of a staged concert of two parts of Puccini's magnificent Il Trittico: a devastating story of love, jealousy and lost hopes - Il Tabarro, paired with a black comedy about greed, deception and getting your way - Gianni Schicchi.

Jill Gardner and Yi Li return to reprise the roles of Giorgetta and Luigi which they sang with MDLO this past September. Fresh off his MDLO debut as Enrico in Lucia di Lammermoor last season, Daniel Scofield leads the cast of Gianni Schicchi. This staged concert is directed by the renowned opera Director Harry Silverstein, in cooperation with Set Designer Noelle Thomas. The full MDLO Orchestra and Members of MDLO Chorus are led by Music Director Louis Salemno.
