Act Up! 2016 – Puccini’s Suor Angelica

Act-UpCombining Boulder Opera’s signature polished productions and Opera on Tap Colorado’s penchant for taking opera out of the concert hall and into the bar, Act Up! is a great way to dive into opera in a fun, intimate atmosphere.

Opera on Tap Colorado and Boulder Opera bring a modernized version of Suor Angelica by Puccini to six small venues in August and September.

Get a glimpse of life behind the gates at a conservative Christian boarding school somewhere in the American South, where we find Angelica awaiting the visit of her aunt with news of the child she was forced to abandon at birth.

The ensemble cast features:
Ruth Brand
Julie Silver Campbell
Jennifer Cress
Corinne Denny
Adrianne Fleming
Phoenix Gayles
Margaret Ozaki Graves
Kate Adams Johnson
Jennifer Kubik
Kate Mathews
Eve Orenstein
Leah Podzimek
Paige Sentianen
Kristen Smith
