Event Time:7:30 PM - 10:30 PM

Puccini was inspired to write this poignant opera because his own sister was a nun. The main character Angelica, a young noblewoman, has an out of wedlock child who is placed with her aunt and then is banished to a convent. Later, the aunt visits wanting her to sign papers turning everything over to her younger sister. When she asks about her son, she is told the son died several years ago. Upon hearing this upsetting news, Angelica takes poison praying to be forgiven for committing suicide.

The second act will feature an opera by Donizetti who is probably best known for his great tragedy Lucia di Lammermoor, but was also a master of comedy as seen in Il Campanello di notte. This short farce is in the best Italian comic tradition with a love triangle of Serafina, a young vivacious woman being married to an older pharmacist when a former young lover, Enrico tries to intervene. (Rating PG)
