Description from the Opera Delaware’s website:

Based on part of Dante’s Divine Comedy, Gianni Schicchi (the final installment of Puccini’s Il Trittico) is the beloved comic opera about the conniving Donati family's attempts to change their deceased uncle's will for their own gain. Buoso’s Ghost, a contemporary “sequel” to Gianni Schicchi by Michael Ching, suggests that wealthy Uncle Buoso did not die of natural causes. Packed with drama and laughs, Buoso’s Ghost fills out Puccini’s original story and confirms that no one can outsmart Gianni Schicchi!
