Join us for an evening with Puccini’s heroines! We present popular arias, duets and ensembles from some of Puccini’s most famous females, culminating in a staged performance of 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.

What our audiences say

'The Sister Angelica was unexpectedly moving; it took a while to get into the plot but by the end I was feeling for a parallel of a young mother in a Syrian refugee camp who is mourning the loss of her third child… This was a powerful opera and you did a great job. Thank you.'

David Austin, audience member, Nailsworth Festival, May 2019
