Read more about the opera Gianni Schicchi

On this tour, Schicchi was given the unusual role of starting the evening rather than ending it. The melodrama of Il tabarro after the interval was therefore given a higher profile. It was less familiar, and the reviewers gave it more space than this comedy which was already a popular favourite. Cast information from reviews, here the Herald, is therefore limited.
