Puccini began BCO’s third season, and Puccini closes them out with three memorable works for the price of one, in his verismo tour de force, Il Trittico. Made up of three one-act operas—Il Tabarro, Suor Angelica, and Gianni Schicchi—their final production of the season will offer something for everyone.

  • Gritty and violent, Il Tabarro is certain to capture your attention from the first note.
  • Suor Angelica tells the tragic story of sin, sacrifice and redemption in a convent.
  • Gianni Schicchi closes the triptych, lightening the mood with a comic tale drawn from Dante’s Divine Comedy. Heirs to Buoso Donati feign respect for their deceased loved one, while secretly scrambling to find out if they appear in his will.

Three operas, three stories, three great experiences for the price of one! Purchase your seats and dining reservations today!

*Those who buy their tickets in advance are welcome to complimentary hors d’oeuvres (Friday only) and a pre-concert lecture. If we are not sold out in advance, we will sell tickets at the door. As a guest of the Baltimore Concert Opera, you are also welcome to make dining reservations at the club via the BCO (view dining options). Dress code at The Engineers Club is business casual.
