CR Opera presents a double feature of Puccini’s Gianni Schicchi and Nassif’s American Gothical
Double your fun with a double feature of comedic opera! Puccini’s hilarious one-act, Gianni Schicchi, filled with imposters and ingenuity, takes centerstage first. The second feature, Robert Lindsey-Nassif’s, American Gothical, is a laugh-filled love letter to one of Iowa’s most famous paintings. CROpera’s season culminates in something old, something new, something operatic just for you!
