Italian-American composer Gian Carlo Menotti, unashamed of theatricality and tonal melody, ranks as one of the most original and popular 20th century opera composers. Written in English in 1954, this is the story of a simple young girl in New York's Little Italy who hears voices and sees visions. Her protective brother Michele, who is also a convinced atheist, thinks his sister needs hospitalization, but he cannot stop their neighbors from believing his sister to be a saint. A grand opera experience that has everything: a compelling story line, three-dimensional characters from ordinary life, rich vocal writing, a sumptuous orchestration, and high theatricality! Produced in collaboration with DiCapo Opera, New York City, don't miss its Chicago premiere!
