Event Description

We invite you to Bethel University's first opera production! The Department of Music & Theatre presents An Operatic Double Bill featuring two one-act operas: Giacomo Puccini's "Suor Angelica" and Pauline Viardot's "Cinderella." A great evening of musical drama presented by Bethel’s talented student musicians.

Director: Leigh Anne Adams
Musical Director: Merrin Guice Gill

Suor Angelica, set in a convent in Siena during the latter part of the seventeenth century, recounts the fall, redemption, and final transfiguration of its central character, Sister Angelica, who has taken the veil in repentance for bearing a child out of wedlock.

Based on the well-loved story, Cinderella is a chamber operetta with dialogue in three brief acts by Pauline Viardot. It has been described as "a retelling of the Cinderella story with Gallic wit, Italianate bel canto, and a quirkiness all her [Viardot's] own."

(Due to subject content, Suor Angelica is not intended for ages 9 and under)
