The Sisters is an evening of two one-act operas. Two poetic and gripping stories about people who’ve been hard hit by life's circumstances: Puccini’s Suor Angelica and Catharina Backman’s brand new opera On the Other Side of the Sea.
March 26 – May 8 2022
In the first opera, we meet Sister Angelica – the nun who was forced into a convent because she gave birth to an illegitimate child. In the second, the foster sisters Siri and Iris, who are separated due to poverty and hunger and never stop longing and looking for each other.
Both operas are performed by the same ensemble, with soloists and a female choir.
