Suor Angelica, featuring soprano, Christie Weber, is the poignant story of a young woman of nobility who was forced to enter the convent after having a child out of wedlock.  Supported by a family of nuns including Genevieve sung by Caroline Oldfather and Mother Abbess, Ginger Beazley, Angelica has become an inspiration to the community.   The tranquility of the convent life is interrupted by the Principessa, Rebecca Rogers, who comes to require Angelica to relinquish all noble rights and face the news of her child's death.  

Buoso Donati is DEAD!  His house is filled with a bevy of greedy, unscrupulous relatives looking for his will.  Fearful that he has left his considerable estate to the friars, they engage Gianni Schicchi to find a solution to their problem.  He is happy to help -  to the dismay of the relatives.  Justice is served!   Hilarity prevails.
