Three operas in one

West Bay Opera presents Puccini's 'Trittico'

West Bay Opera's latest offering, Puccini's "Trittico" (Triptych), is actually three operas in one: "Il Tabarro (The Cloak);" "Suor Angelica (Sister Angelica)" and "Gianni Schicchi," sung in Italian with English titles.

A death concealed is the shared connection between the two tragedies and a comedy, which involve a fatal love triangle aboard a French ship, the fate of a single mother shunned by her wealthy family and a story of greed and deception in medieval Florence.

The ambitious production boasts a large cast (including a chorus) and is conducted by Jose Luis Moscovich.

There are two more chances to catch a performance: Saturday, Feb. 25, at 8 p.m. and Sunday, Feb. 26, at 2 p.m. at the Lucie Stern Theater, 1305 Middlefield Road, Palo Alto. Tickets are $35-$83. Go to West Bay Opera.
