Sister Angelica

Composer: Giacomo Puccini

In a convent. Angelica has lived in the peace of the convent for seven years. Her past life was different. She was a young girl who discovered the happiness of love. She has a son whom she misses everyday. She has never gotten any news from her family who took her to the convent to cover up the scandal. Her aunt, the princess, visits her. Angelica just wants to know how her son is and her aunt tells her that the child has died. Angelica falls down on the ground. Later she prays that she may not die in mortal sin. Seemingly in answer to her prayer, the Virgin Mary and her son appear in a vision. She dies.
