Opera UCI presents Suor Angelica. First performed in 1918, this opera presents the story of Sister Angelica who has been forced to enter a convent by her family, following a scandal. Her aunt, the Princess, pays her first visit since Angelica entered the convent seven years previous. Asking Angelica to sign over her inheritance to her younger sister, drama ensues. Suor Angelica is the second installment in Giacomo Puccini’s triptych of operas, the ethereal and spiritual Il trittico, the dark melodrama Il tabarro and the gutsy comedy of Gianni Schicchi.
