Saturday, March 23 – 'Cinderella'
The speaker will discuss this romantic comedy about a kindhearted girl who dreams of escaping the tyranny of her vain stepsisters. When the prince announces that he will choose his bride at a glamorous ball, she seizes the opportunity to take control of her own destiny.
Saturday, May 4 – 'Tosca'
Tosca is a passionate tale set to some of Puccini's most openly beautiful and romantic music. A passionate prima donna is forced to play a role she never imagined when she becomes trapped between her allegiance to her rebel lover and the scheming of a treacherous police chief who will stop at nothing in his lust for her.
