Join Toi Toi Opera for their inaugural production, Suor Angelica & Elegies, showcasing some of Canterbury's finest vocal & dramatic talent.

In this compelling new production, Toi Toi Opera’s creative team led by director Sara Brodie & production designer Mark McEntyre, stages Puccini’s one act opera Suor Angelica amid the horrors of a makeshift hospital in World War One. The plot, unfolding in one day amid the mayhem of the suffering of the soldiers, adapts well to the self-sacrifice of nurses in war time. With musical and dramatic hints of Puccini’s masterpiece Madama Butterfly, Suor Angelica is an opera not to be missed.

The opera, starring Sarah-Jane Rennie as Sister Angelica, will be complemented by Elegies - staged scenes following the soldiers' wartime journey, & that of the women left behind on the home front, all drawn together by narrator Laurence Wiseman, under the baton of maestro Mark Hodgkinson.
