The Pantazelos Performing Artists Foundation's Opera West! (www.OperaWest.org) presents a new professional production of Puccini's Suor Angelica with full orchestra in the inspiring setting of Saint Ita's.
Sister Angelica enters the convent, committed to a life of reparation and penance, as an unwed mother whose child was given away at birth. Puccini's gorgeous and loving score provides an intimate insight into the daily lives of the sisters. His music guides us through the trials that Angelica must face while hidden within the stone walls of the convent.
Director Janice Pantazelos breathes life into one of Giacomo Puccini's most accomplished works.
Starring Lela Philbrook and Lani Stait in the title role, Santa Fe's own contralto AnnaMaria Cardinalli as the cruel and unforgiving Zia Principessa, and a talented cast of convent sisters, this is a performance not to be missed.
Running time 60 minutes.
