Join us for an evening with some of opera’s greatest heroines! In collaboration with ‘Sorelle’ we present popular arias, duets and ensembles from some of opera’s most famous females, culminating in a staged performance by Opera Anywhere of Puccini’s Sister Angelica.
Sister Angelica is a unique one-act opera of harrowing drama and unequalled redemptive beauty. In the convent, Sister Angelica cherishes a hidden, burning desire to see her illegitimate child, taken from her seven years before.
When she learns suddenly of her son’s tragic death, Angelica is plunged into suicidal delirium. Will she be redeemed, re-united, and finally accepted for who she is?
Sung in English.
