The Puccini Scandal makes a much anticipated return after its sold out debut at the NCH in 2015. The 'Villa Puccini' in Tuscany, Italy, is the setting for this intriguing new dramatisation of the life of opera composer Giacomo Puccini.
As he struggles to finish his opera Turandot, the composer brings us on a journey through his life, interspersed with "flashback" scenes from his most loved operas such as La bohème, Madama Butterfly, Tosca, Gianni Schicchi, La Rondine, Turandot and others.
Written and Directed by Niall Morris.
