To commemorate the 100th anniversary of the death of Giacomo Puccini, Meadows Lyric Theatre presents a double-bill of the composer’s heart-rending Suor Angelica and his only comedy, Gianni Schicchi.

Suor Angelica tells the story of a young woman who has had a child out of wedlock and is sent to a convent to atone for her sin. When she receives news that her child has died, she drinks poison. Realizing too late that she has committed a mortal sin, she begs the Holy Mother for mercy.

In Gianni Schicchi, the greedy Donati family discovers that the wealthy Buoso has left all his money to the church, leaving them bereft of an inheritance. Reluctantly, they team up with the wily Schicchi to rewrite the will in their favor, only to watch him turn the tables on them.

Both operas will be sung in the original Italian with English titles projected above the stage.
