This week at the library...

Opera Talk presents...
TOSCA
Our last Opera Talk of the season will be a multimedia presentation and discussion of the opera Tosca, led by Ronald Streicher from LA Opera’s Community Engagement Program.

A fiery 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. The explosive conflict between these three unforgettable characters comes to a hair-raising conclusion in one of opera's bloodiest, most intense dramas.
