The Art of Opera with Dr. Miriam Schildkret
Join Dr. Miriam Schildkret, PN1 for our Spring Series with the Jewish Family and Children's Services Center for Senior Enrichment. This class will be focused on Tosca.
Set in 19th century Rome during the Napoleonic wars, Chief of Police, Baron Scarpia, has long lusted after Rome's diva, Floria Tosca. When Scarpia suspects Tosca's lover, Cavaradossi, of assisting an escaped political prisoner, Scarpia seizes the opportunity to kill two birds with one stone. He will manipulate Tosca into revealing the prisoner's hiding place and Cavaradossi's involvement, and have her for himself.
This virtual class is FREE.
