In the tragic melodrama Suor Angelica, Sister Angelica has been shut away in a convent for 7 years as punishment for a youthful indiscretion. Her aristocratic aunt comes to visit her with soul shattering news.
In the hilarious farce Gianni Schicchi, the shady businessman Gianni Schicchi has been called in reluctantly by the Donati family to help falsify a will. He complies, but not with the results they are hoping for.
