Come See Tosca and Stay for Dinner and Conversation at Ciao!
Do you love opera? Have you been curious, but a little timid about going?
Join us to see the most highly regarded and beloved works of Puccini's - a tragic tale of revenge and murder.
Sit back and be transported to Rome on the edge of invasion in this marvelous melodrama. This opera is as perfect for first timers as it is for seasoned audiences.
Under the cloud of rebellion on all sides, Rome is in the middle of a tumultuous change as the Royalist regime is winning over the Republic. Whilst the merciless Baron Scarpia is rounding up rebels and jailing them, Tosca rehearses in a church before meeting her fugitive lover Cavaradossi.
When the embittered Baron catches up with him he falls for Tosca, much to her anger, and tortures her lover in front of him. If she yields to him, she is promised his life under the guise of a false execution. But Scarpia's meanness knows no bounds and before the day is out, all life will be extinguished.
We will meet in the lobby at 12:30 so we may get seats together.
Since the tickets to these performances sellout quickly, we recommend buying in advance.
Join us at Ciao! afterwards for dinner and a discussion of the opera, led by LLH member Donald Mintz. Dinner will be dutch treat ordering from the full menu.
