UL's Angelle Hall

A turning point in opera. Join us for a presentation of Giacomo Puccini’s famous comic opera, Gianni Schicchi, masterfully performed by Acadiana Symphony Orchestra and the University of Louisiana Opera Department. Puccini was among many composers of the 19th century who developed new ways to entertain and connect with wider audiences, by creating works that utilized operatic romanticism, on-stage antics, and a newly developed lyrical style of the time, known as bell canto. The work of Puccini and others from this period influenced generations of musicians and composers who followed.
