Our Puccini double bill of one act operas — the gripping Il tabarro and heart-rending Suor Angelica — has opened. Here is a selection of opening night audience tweets, Facebook comments, and some production photos...
Wonderful performance of Il Tabarro @Opera_North tonight, full of passionate intensity and despair and glorious singing— David Cloke (@DavidCloke) October 1, 2016
Well, @Opera_North 's Il tabarro/Suor Angelica combo was stupendous. I have well and truly had my withers wrung. Fantastic singing/playing.— VictoriaG (@ancientnmodern) October 1, 2016
Another great performance tonight by @Opera_North: I forget with Puccini's music how much subtlety there is underneath the sweetness…— Oliver Mantell (@OliverMantell) October 1, 2016
Fab @Opera_North Anne-Sophie Duprels' voice sublime & moving in Suor Angelica, moody noir shadows and glorious singing in Il Tabarro— (((Cath Annabel))) (@cathannabel) October 2, 2016
