Photo Flash: Capitol City Opera Stages GIANNI SCHICCHI and BUOSO'S GHOST

Capitol City Opera will present two one-act opera comedies in one night! Giacomo Pucinni's Gianni Schicchi tells the story of a greedy family's fight over their dead relative Buoso's fortune. Fearing that Buoso has left his entire estate to a monastery, the family relies on their cunning neighbor, Gianni Schicchi, to help. Gianni agrees, but will he keep all the money for himself? Michael Ching's modern sequel, Buoso's Ghost, written in 1996, continues the story 24-hours after Gianni Schicchi ends, and sets a murder mystery in motion. Gianni Schicchi becomes suspicious that Buoso may not have died of natural causes. He finds evidence instead that Buoso may have been poisoned! Which family member could have done it?

Schicchi and Buoso's Ghost run Friday, March 22 to Sunday, March 24 at the Conant Performing Arts Center at Oglethorpe University. Tickets are $20 - 40 and are available online at ccityopera.org.
