Family matters dominate Puccini's popular one-act operas. Suor Angelica is the tragic story of a young woman forced by an uncaring family to abandon her illegitimate child, and seek refuge in a convent. In the comic romp, Gianni Schicchi, the wily title character conspires to secure a handsome dowry for his lovely daughter by aiding the family of the recently deceased Buoso Donati in falsifying his will, which originally had left them nothing.
