“Puccini’s Tosca: An Immersive Introduction” addressed opera in general, the composer Giacomo Puccini in particular, and provided insight into one of history’s most beloved Toscas: Maria Callas.
This collaboration between Bravo! Vail and the Vail Symposium invited recognized opera expert Robert Marx to Vail. Addressing a near-capacity crowd, Marx peppered his rich discussion with anecdotes and vintage video clips of Maria Callas in the role of Tosca. Joining Marx for Q&A at the end of the program were Bravo! Vail Artistic Director Anne-Marie McDermott and Director of Operations Elli Varas. Both provided the audience with a sense of the effort that went into bringing a full-scale opera to Vail–a feat never before achieved.
