Antonio Pappano introduces and conducts this short one-act opera at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, a tragic tale of love, loss and religious redemption set in 17th-century Sienna, which was Puccini's favourite opera from his trilogy Il Trittico. The setting is a Catholic children's hospital run by nuns, where Sister Angelica has become an expert herbalist creating remedies for the sick. She is much loved yet hiding a deep secret and over the course of the work Puccini gradually tightens the emotional screw.
Directed for the stage by Richard Jones with an international cast.
