Il trittico was Puccini's penultimate work. Conceived during World War One, it appeared around the end of a long period of dormancy for the maestro, and was followed only by the unfinished Turandot, after yet another long hiatus, lasting eight year. Il tabarro tells the tale of a love triangle set in the oppressive atmosphere of a boat rocking along the banks of the Seine. Set at Easter time, Suor Angelica relates a tragedy unfolding at a convent, and the comic Gianni Schicchi was inspired by a mediaeval Florentine whose sly means of enriching himself were described by Dante himself in his Inferno.
Of the three one-acts that make up the work, two can be seen on different evenings at the Erkel Theatre with a magnificent cast, directed by Ferenc Anger.
