The dramatic plot and evocative musical score of Manuel de Falla’s Spanish opera La Vida Breve balances the sharp humor and melodic wit of Puccini’s Gianni Schicchi.
"In short, this was a totally delightful evening, a near-triumph for Adelaide’s resident opera company."
"The rare double bill of Spanish opera La Vida Breve and Puccini’s popular Gianni Schicchi delivers an enriching night’s entertainment that balances tragedy and comedy, sensitivity and irony"
"Two classy, contrasting performances in one night."
