In the world of opera, magic is made not only on the stage, but on the conductor’s podium and behind the scenes as well. As part of Bravo! Vail’s new Inside the Music series, this special event provides a unique perspective on “Tosca” with renowned opera expert Robert Marx and Joseph Illick, artistic director and principal conductor of Fort Worth Opera. Via an interactive interview format, guests will learn how the musical score drives the story, explore the orchestra’s role in the opera experience, and gain a unique perspective from behind the baton.

This program is generously underwritten by Sandy & Fred Pack and Bravo! Vail’s Tosca Circle
