Audition Description

When old Buoso Donati dies, his greedy relatives are determined to get their hands on his fortune at any cost. They turn to the roguish Gianni Schicchi to help… with unexpected results. Puccini's one-act masterpiece features some of his most memorable music, and is regarded as one of the funniest operas of all time. Presented in Italian with English subtitles, alongside a costumed performance of beloved operatic songs and scenes.

Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script.

  • Role #1 - Buoso Donati

    An elderly, sickly man who\'s spent more time on his deathbed than most people spend living. Frail and rattling, but not without some power over his family. Still conniving after all these years. Note: the actor who plays buoso will also play dr. Spinelloccio and mr. Amantio.

  • Role #9 - Matteo Donati

    Zita\'s nephew, perhaps the sanest member of the whole family. Sensible, kind-hearted and romantic, but not without his Donati sharpness.

  • Role #12 - Gianni Schicchi

    A likable rogue, full of shabby dignity, potentially with a large nose. Equal parts blowhard and con artist — or rather, an artist in the powers of persuasion. The audience might be his best friend.
