We're going Friday... to Tosca

The Big O - Tosca is one of the signature roles of Neves' repertoire. The title character is a diva's diva. Puccini's 1887 composition is an opera about an opera singer plagued by a malevolent magistrate with a hidden agenda.
We understand that this lead is a nice person. Unlike one in New York who (so the story goes), on the last performance, jumped off the castle wall not into a padded landing but onto a trampoline set there by the stage crew in revenge.
Another theater date we hope to share is Fiddler On the Roof at Carlynton High School -- this weekend. We know a couple of the fiddlers! How cool is that! Break a leg, but not a string!
