Puccini: Gianni Schicchi

Alessandro Corbelli takes the title role in Annabel Arden's whirlwind production of Puccini's compact opera, in which the scheming Gianni Schicchi retrieves for himself the spoils of a disinherited family to pave the way for his daughter to marry her love. As performed at Glyndebourne, Gianni Schicchi is here combined in a double bill with Rachmaninov's dark setting of Alexander Pushkin's little tragedy, The Miserly Knight, also directed by Annabel Arden and featuring an outstanding performance from Sergei Leiferkus in the role written for the great Russian bass Fyodor Chaliapin. Rachmaninov's dramatically brooding score portrays the miser consumed by the power of his glinting gold, as it pushes him to his ultimate collapse.
