Puccini’s Suor Angelica at the Deacon John Grave House

September 10, 2021 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Puccini’s beloved one-act opera Suor Angelica (“Sister Angelica”) is playing at Madison’s Deacon John Grave House! Containing moments of harrowing drama and unequaled redemptive beauty, Sister Angelica, a Florentine noblewoman, has been forced by her family to enter a convent after giving birth to a child out of wedlock – and for seven years has in vain waited for tidings from her family. Finally, Angelica’s aunt, the Princess, comes to visit to reveal the fate of the child she was forced to give away, and to cruelly ask her to sign away her rights to her inheritance.

The evening will open with Schoenberg’s Erwartung (“Expectation”), a one-act monodrama that follows a lone individual through the forest in search of a lost lover. Suor Angelica will be performed in Italian with English subtitles; Erwartung will be performed in English. On the grounds of the Deacon John Grave House in Madison. September 9-19.

Tickets are $50 and can be purchased here.
