Cedar Rapids Opera Theatre presents a double feature of Puccini’s Gianni Schicchi and Nassif’s American Gothical.


Imposters and hijinks abound in Puccini's charming one-act farce Gianni Schicchi (sung in English). After intermission, Robert Lindsey-Nassif's laugh-filled operatic love letter to one of Iowa's most famous paintings, American Gothical, takes center stage. Double the opera, double the fun!
