Kirill Petrenko conducts Puccini’s “Suor Angelica”

The first opera in the Philharmonie Berlin led by Kirill Petrenko: Giacomo Puccini’s drama Suor Angelica, which takes place in a convent and tells the moving story of a young nun. Even if the period and setting have little to do with the realities of life today, the message of the opera is more current than ever: it concerns humanity in an inhuman environment and the struggle for one’s own dignity. In this production, it is given a contemporary setting by director Nicola Hümpel and performed by up-and-coming singers, the choir of the Vocal Heroes choral programme, and the Karajan Academy.
