In Suor Angelica, a young nun who is forced to enter a convent by her family takes poison when a heartless aunt coldly informs her of the death of her child. Seized by remorse, she prays for forgiveness and witnesses a miracle. Maestro Christofer Macatsoris conducts the AVA Opera Orchestra.

Set on a barge on the Seine in Paris, Il tabarro tells the tale of a captain who discovers his wife's infidelity, and exacts a shocking revenge.
