Premiere of Pucinni's Gianni Schicchi

Well it is not everyday that one can receive top entertainment for all of 15 UAH, but this was the case when I attended the premiere of Giacomo Puccini's Comic Opera in one Act Gianni Schicchi, at the Tchaikovsky National Music Academy of Ukraine in Kyiv on March 26, 2008.

I am not sure when it is going to be shown again, but for anyone who is in Kyiv and if you have a chance to attend take the time to do so. It was comical, witty, entertaining and well performed and in Ukrainian.


  1. Vasyl,

    You never came off as an opera guy.
    I love the music but can't take the singing!

  2. Actually, you are right, I'm not but it was just one of those things that I went to with a group of friends!

  3. Bill,

    DOn't know whether you've seen this, but you might well find it interesting.

    I couldn't find the Ukrainian version.
