Contrast is the essence of Giacomo Puccini’s operatic triptych, Il trittico. The one-act works that form the trilogy – Il tabarro, Suor Angelica and Gianni Schicchi – range from gritty melodrama to life-affirming comedy.

The opera will be broadcast free on Friday 5th June at 7pm as part of the Royal Opera House's #OurHouseToYourHouse
