Suor Angelica is a thought-provoking opera in one act by Giacomo Puccini. After the years of creative searches, Puccini finally completed three one-act operas in 1918: Il tabarroSuor Angelica and Gianni Schicchi, among which the composer considered Suor Angelica to be the best one. The opera with a melancholic undertone tells the story about an upper-class woman Angelica whose greatest sin is having an illegitimate son. The opera focuses on the protagonist Angelica's sufferings, on human cruelty but also on redemption. The opera is set at the end of 17th century in a convent; thus, nothing would suit better for performing in the ruins of Pirita Convent than this opera.

The team behind the directing and music of the opera is remarkable. Dmitri Bertman, a world-famous stage director, multiple Golden Mask Award laureate and artistic director of Helikon Opera in Moscow joined Tallinn Philharmonic Society. He will take over the position of artistic director of Birgitta festival from Risto Joost in 2020. Bertman has worked with various opera theatres all around the world and staged more than one hundred operas. He has been involved in Birgitta festival also earlier – in 2014, Bertman directed the opera gala dedicated to Eri Klas's 75th birthday as well as repeatedly directed both in Estonian National Opera and Vanemuise Theatre. Helikon-Opera has also held performances in Birgitta festival.

Ene-Liis Semper is an artist with one of the most intriguing visual language in Estonia; yet, she designs sets and costumes of theatrical performances all over Europe. Semper and Bertman have collaborated in Estonia for several times, for instance in Erkki-Sven Tüür's opera Wallenberg and Charles Gounod's Faust. Anyone who has seen co-works by Semper and Bertman knows that this offers exciting experience and discoveries in all the new productions they work with.

Paul Mägi is a renown and acknowledged opera conductor whose repertoire includes both classical and contemporary operas. Mägi has worked all around the world – he has conducted Detroit Symphony Orchestra in USA, Moscow Philharmonic Orchestra, Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra, Estonian National Opera etc. Since 2011, he is the musical  director and chief conductor of Theatre Vanemuine.

The main roles of the opera will be performed by internationally renowned opera soloists Alexia Voulgaridou and Larissa Kostyuk. Voulgaridou in the role of Angelica is a well-known singer and has performed for instance in the Royal Swedish Opera and Seattle Opera, USA.
