Scene for the Principessa and Suor Angelica from Suor Angelica by Giacomo Puccini

Sister Angelica, a Florentine noblewoman, has been compelled by her family to take the veil, following the birth of her child out of wedlock, and for seven years has in vain been waiting to hear news from her friends and family. Finally, she receives a visit from her aunt, the dowager princess and the news is devastating.
