In a very rare double bill, Puccini’s comedic opera Gianni Schicchi is matched by the impassioned Spanish drama of Manuel de Falla’s La Vida Breve – the brief life! 

A tragic tale of unrequited love, deception and death, La Vida Breve contains some of the most characteristic Spanish orchestral music in the repertoire, and features a stellar ensemble including Gisele Blanchard, Elizabeth Campbell and Brenton Spiteri.  In contrast, Gianni Schicchi is a comic tale of impersonation and desperation with a twist in the tail.  Douglas McNicol directs and stars in this delightful one act opera together with the cream of Adelaide’s operatic talent including Pelham Andrews, Desiree Frahn, Jeremy Tatchell and Fiona McArdle. 

Both productions feature the State Opera Chorus and Adelaide Symphony Orchestra led by respected conductor, Brian Castles-Onion.
