Suor Angelica is the 5th production of the Puccini Project, designed to present all twelve of Giacomo Puccini’s opera compositions.  Originally a part of Il Trittico, three short operas designed to be performed together, Suor Angelica is the dramatic story of a nun in penitence over the dishonor felt by her family over the birth of her illegitimate child.  It has been seven years since Sister Angelica has had any contact with her family but without warning, her aunt, The Princess, arrives to demand her signature on documents that will renounce her inheritance.  It is only then that Angelica learns that the child she saw and kissed only once died two years previously.  In overwhelming grief, Angelica takes her own life and is embraced by a miracle.  The cast is lead by Jennifer Davison as Sister Angelica and Rachel Gibson as The Princess.
