Description

This radically original fusion of movement and theater explores 100 years in the life of North Beach nightspot Tosca Café, conjuring a world in which love, betrayal, and hope emerge from the shadows and disappear with the clink of a glass. __The Tosca Project __brings world-renowned dancers from San Francisco Ballet, including prima ballerina Sabina Allemann, together with such acclaimed actors as The Overcoat‘s Peter Anderson and A.C.T.’s own Jack Willis (Rock ‘n’ Roll). Loosely structured around the themes of Puccini’s Tosca, this imaginative new work is gorgeously choreographed, achingly moving, and scored with some of the best music ever made, from Hendrix to Stravinsky.
