The previews are free and open to the public. No registration is required. Free parking is available at the branches. Parking is available in the Central Library garage at the regular rates.


"La Voix Humaine" by Poulenc is a melodrama in which a desperate woman is shunned by her lover over the telephone. Puccini's "Suor Angelica" explores the despair and ultimate salvation of a woman forced to give up her illegitimate son and become a nun.
