Customer Reviews for Suor Angelica
Location: from Brighton, UK

A Puccini Opera
I belong to an Opera society and we are presenting "Sour Angelica" as half of our next concert. The choice, therefore, is not mine. Puccini's music is always wonderful, but the plot of this opera, centring on a nun who has been placed in a convent for her wickedness in producing a son, is not my favourite. The supposed happy ending when she is permitted to see the vision of her dead son, courtesy of the Virgin Mary is equally not so. That said, it is a somewhat easier sing for the chorus than many operas.
