“Il Tabarro and Gianni Schicchi” are both from Giacomo Puccini's Il Trittico. The highly-charged drama “Il Tabarro” takes place on a barge moored in Paris. Puccini’s haunting masterpiece, with big lyrical roles is justly famous, though not often heard.
“Gianni Schicchi” is a brilliant Florentine comedy. The greedy family of poor, dead Buoso dry their eyes to claim his fortune; however the wily Schicchi also has his eyes set on the inheritance.
This award winning poster was designed and illustrated by Thomas G. Fowler for the Connecticut Grand Opera & Orchestra.

Printed in an extremely limited quantity on high quality paper by H.T. Woods in 1997.
