Marble City Opera presents “Suor Angelica” by Giacomo Puccini
St. John’s Cathedral (Courtyard); 413 Cumberland Ave.
Performed with full cast and orchestra in the courtyard of St. John’s Cathedral, the Puccini classic “Suor Angelica” follows the events of a single day in the lives of Sister Angelica and the other nuns in a convent. Their peaceful lives are interrupted one day when Angelica’s aunt, the Principessa, arrives with news of their family. Having been cloistered within the walls of the convent for several years, the information is completely new to Angelica and shakes her to the core. The tragic events that are set off eventually lead to her ultimate redemption, and the story masterfully told through Puccini’s score make this a can’t miss staple of the operatic canon. Tickets: $30 Adults/$15 Students

Tickets: $20; children 12 years old and younger, $10. Tickets can be purchased on the Tennessee Valley Players’ website and at the box office starting 1 hour prior to each show with cash, check, or credit card. Festival seating.
