Suor Angelica

Essential Series / New Verismo

June 8 & 10 2017
Lydia Mendelssohn Theater
Ann Arbor, Michigan

Arbor Opera Theater's new festival Beyond Boundaries will be held the first full week of June. It's going to be a week filled with powerful performances, including TWO productions of Puccini's Suor Angelica.

The first will be a traditional production sung in Italian. The second production will be a new English adaptation written by Angela Hench and artistic director Shawn McDonald. The adaptation is set in mid-century Ireland in the Magdalene Laundries (read more below). Both performances will be fully staged, accompanied by orchestra and presented with English language supertitles.
