Puccini's one-act opera climbs 55 places and is just shy of its highest-ever ranking (at 137)

In this comic Puccini miniature from 1918, a Florentine trickster cons a bereaved family into bequeathing all its inheritance to him. The opera is the third and final part of Puccini's Il trittico (The Triptych) three one-act operas with contrasting themes, and it includes the popular 'O mio babbino caro'.
