Gianni Schicchi and Suor Angelica at Belhaven Center for the Arts

Gianni Schicchi and Suor Angelica at Belhaven Center for the Arts

Posted

In the beautiful city of Florence, Italy, the wealthy Buoso Donati lies dead in his bed and his relatives gather around him to mourn his passing. However, what they are really interested in is learning the contents of his will. Gianni Schicchi is a delightful opera that begins with death but ends in comedy.

Also set in a 17th-century Italian convent, Suor Angelica waits to hear from her wealthy, noble family, but her aunt, a princess, only comes to the convent to get her to renounce her claim to her inheritance. Angelica replies that she cannot forget her son, who her aunt tells her is now dead. However, in the final scene, she is, through death, reunited with her son in heaven.
