Act Up! 2016 – Puccini’s Suor Angelica
Combining 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.
