Puccini’s one-act opera Suor Angelica in 1918 is set in a convent. Sister Angelica is the convent herbalist, and at the end of the opera she uses her skills with herbs to prepare a deadly poison for herself after she has discovered that the child she had seven years earlier, whose birth was the reason for her incarceration in the convent, has died without any of her family even bothering to tell her of his death.
