The Conservatory presents its fall opera, directed by Fenlon Lamb. Puccini's one-act operas, Suor Angelica and Gianni Schicchi, depict divergent paths to heaven and hell. Suor Angelica tells the sad story of a nun who was sent to a convent as punishment for having an illegitimate child, featuring motherly love, pain, guilt, and redemption. Gianni Schicchi is a farcical tale based on an episode from Dante's The Divine Comedy about a greedy family trying to impersonate a dead relative and worm their way into his will. It features one of the most popular arias of all time, "O mio babbino caro."

Tickets: $12 general public; UMKC faculty, staff and all students FREE with UMKC or student ID.
