Soprano Suzanne Ramo as Soeur Constance, however, gave the most complete vocal and dramatic performance of the night. Her full lyric voice projected a clear sound in all of her scenes with just the right touch of naïveté and femininity. Ramo was full of life in her Act One scene with Blanche and later showed a useful dramatic template in her disdain for her in the voting scene.
