Iain Scott returns with Three Weeks in Rome!
October 4 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDT
Join Iain on a three-week exploration of operas and history set in Rome!
In Week 3, we will explore MODERN ROME, beginning with the dramatic events of June 1800, as Napoleon’s second invasion of Italy created an existential crisis for the Neapolitan monarchical authorities in Rome. We will explore the three key Roman locations dramatized by Victorien Sardou and later adapted by Giacomo Puccini in TOSCA. Then in a lighter vein, follow the misfortunes of the elderly Roman bachelor, Don PASQUALE and end with a visit to the current opera houses of the Italian capital city.
