Seeing and hearing an opera on a big screen is a powerful experience, in some ways more exciting than a live performance.  Recommended for mature adults and others.

We will decide to have a meal afterwards, depending on attendees' desires.

 

Tosca takes places within less than 24 hours in 1800, entirely in Roman churches and palaces you have no doubt been to.   Napoleon’s army approaches the city and the plot of love, intrigue, and death spins out to wonderful music. Two lovers, the painter Mario Cavaradossi and the opera singer, Flora Tosca, live only for art and love.  The head of the Roman secret police – you may imagine him as Dick Cheney – interrupts their idyll.  From here events cascade in ways no one anticipates.

 

With a straight forward story line – without the twists and improbabilities normally associated with opera – this is a perfect opera for someone unfamiliar with the art form. 

 

The future operas this season are:  L’Elisir d’Amore (Feb 10), La Boheme (Feb 24), Semiramide (Mar 10), Cosi fanTutte (Mar 31), Luisa Miller (April 14), Cendrillon (April 28).
