    Special Event at the Ridgefield Playhouse: Met Opera Puccini's Tosca

    Come join us to watch the Metropolitan Opera on screen : Puccini's Tosca

    Puccini’s melodrama about a volatile diva, a sadistic police chief, and an idealistic artist has offended and thrilled audiences for more than a century. Critics, for their part, have often had problems with Tosca’s rather grungy subject matter, the directness and intensity of its score, and the crowd-pleasing dramatic opportunities it provides for its lead roles. But these same aspects have made Tosca one of a handful of iconic works that seem to represent opera in the public imagination. Tosca’s popularity is further secured by a superb and exhilarating dramatic sweep, a driving score of abundant melody and theatrical shrewdness, and a career-defining title role.


    Hope to see you there!

    Join us on a trip to the Maritime Aquarium for “Strive for the Gold” Weekend on Monday, February 19th (President’s Weekend).

    Amidst the world games occurring in Pyeongchang, South Korea, there also are medals to be won Feb. 17-19 at The Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk! The Aquarium’s “Strive for the Gold Weekend” will invite guests to take part in bonus activities, some of which test their skills in comparison to those of aquatic animals. Can you hop farther than a frog? Can you leap as high as a seal? Others may challenge guests in sporting events, like shooting a puck past an “octopus” goalie or tossing a bean bag into a “shark” mouth. Complete all the activities and earn a “Strive for the Gold” medal. And be sure to bring your camera for a “photo opp” at the medals-ceremony podium.

    “Strive for the Gold” activities will be free with Aquarium admission. Go to theAquarium’s website – www.maritimeaquarium.org – for full details.
