Suor Angelica and Gianni Schicchi - by Puccini, directed by David Bartholomew and Kristen Barrett, conducted by Anthony Barrese.“Suor Angelica” was Giacomo Puccini’s favorite of his three, one-act operas. It is the tragic story of a cloistered nun forced into a convent by her noble family after having a child out of wedlock. Puccini’s heart-breaking music for an all female cast, stars in her debut at Opera Southwest the outstanding soprano, Abla Hambla. “Gianni Schicchi” is the crafty con artist who outwits greedy relatives determined to rewrite a deceased man’s will in their favor. Filled with outrageous antics, this Puccini comedy stars Matthew Burns who returns to Opera Southwest following his acclaimed comic role as Tadeo in the 2010 production of “Italian Girl in Algiers.” Info: National Hispanic Cultural Center, 1701 4th St. SW, 724-4771, http://www.operasouthwest.org Price: $75-10.
