Yes, it really is that good. A show about young rebels grabbing and shaping the future of an unformed country, "Hamilton" is making its own resonant history by changing the language of musicals.

Cranston's wrenching performance stands on its own. In context, it's a terrifying reminder of how an all-too-human, anger-filled public figure, with access to a worldwide stage, can be mistaken for a god.

Puccini's most underrated opera.

The Telegraph

Why See Metropolitan Opera - Il Trittico?

Puccini's Epic Work Celebrates 100 Years At The Met

A thrilling triptych of three one-act operas, Puccini's Il Trittico returns to the Met Opera 100 years after its first ever debut! Jack O'Brien's visually lush, sweeping revival is unparalleled in the company's repertoire for its scale, mirroring Puccini's musical grandeur. The production also marks the celebrated return of the one and only Placido Domingo in the title role of the third and final opera Gianni Schicchi.

Whilst deeply constrasting, Puccini's epic works come together to create a tableau of life, ranging from the melodramatic to the life-affirming. Each comprised of a self-contained story, the operas make up an aural feast of sonic colour and emotional mood that speaks to the heart, threaded together by the exploration of life, death and the messy in between.

The program begins with Il Tabarro, a dramatic tale of fraught marital relations, followed by Suor Angelica, which chronicles the tragedy of a fallen noblewoman in the confines of a convent. Comic caper Gianni Schicchi ends the evening on a lighter note with its biting social satire and farcical humour.

What we thought

DAZZLING Outstanding mesmerizing

When you go to the opera it is not just your ear drums expanding. Music is the leading role and each note is riddled with history and hope for prosperity.

Just a few years ago I knew nothing about opera. I had heard music by Pavarotti, Bocelli and Groban before but had never sat through an entire opera but this changed in 2018 when I saw Il Trittico.
