In 2016 the Opera in the Park will be Gianni Schicchi by Puccini.  This opera features one of the world’s most popular arias, ‘O mio babbino caro’. The comedy takes place over one day, when a family’s greedy inheritance plans are disrupted. Cunning trickery is everything in this story; only the young lovers remain blissfully ignorant of the scheming around them. Puccini’s final completed opera is a loving tribute to Italian theatrical and musical tradition.

The opera is sung in Italian, with English subtitles on the bottom of the screen.
