ARTISTIC DIRECTOR, Mark Sforzini

Two Puccini one-act operas make for a fabulous night of singing, drama, and antics!  In the tragedy Suor Angelica, a nun must face the truth about her past and confront her judgemental aunt who has arrived at the convent for purposes of her own.

In Gianni Schicchi, the Donati Family really puts the fun in dysfunctional as they squabble over the inheritance from Cousin Buoso. Ultimately they hire a crooked lawyer to rewrite the will, but the outcome is not what they expected.

Suor Angelica, Susan Spatafora

ARTISTIC DIRECTOR,
Mark Sforzini

Cio-Cio San renounces her family and religion to be with the man she loves.  She is unwavering in her faith that Pinkerton will return to Japan to take his proper place as her husband and father to their child, but the American naval officer has his own cultural ideas of marriage.  This ever-popular Puccini opera is one of Maestro Sforzini’s favorite scores to conduct and is one of the world’s great tragic operas.  Prepare to be moved to the depths of your soul and bring your handkerchief.
