Hershey Felder Presents:
Dante and Beatrice in Florence

Sunday, November 28 at 8pm

 Premiering Sunday, November 28, this event tells the story of Italy’s greatest poet, Dante Alighieri, and his muse Beatrice. The heroine of Dante’s The Divine Comedy is Beatrice whom he met but only twice in Florence, once when he was nine, and again when he was eighteen. But Dante was so smitten with Beatrice that she remained his ideal love for the rest of his life. 

 Our story begins in the little church that still stands in Florence where they first met more than 700 years ago. Known as the “Chiesa Di Dante,” it is where Beatrice is said to be buried. Next to Beatrice’s tomb is a basket, where for hundreds of years notes of hope, dreams, heartbreak and love have been left by visitors with open hearts asking for Beatrice’s blessing. One of those notes is a mysterious old musical manuscript and it is there that our adventure begins. 

Hershey Felder Presents:
Mozart and Figaro in Vienna

Sunday January 9 at 8pm

The world first heard and saw The Marriage of Figaro in Vienna in 1786. The opera is considered by many the first and perhaps only perfect opera borne of a staggering collaboration between Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Lorenzo da Ponte – a Jew, a Priest and a Brothel owner all rolled into one. Da Ponte had been banished from Venice due to his low-rent behavior and he ended up in Vienna, where he was introduced to Mozart by Mozart’s landlord, a mutual acquaintance of both. Finding each other full of jokes and high-jinks, with Mozart at the helm, the two of them decide to take a banned play by the French writer Beaumarchais and turn it into the greatest and most beloved opera ever composed.


Access will be for both of the World Premiere Musical Films and a full week of ON DEMAND viewing of the film.  Tickets provide viewing access for one household.  No transferring, sharing or exchanging.  No Refunds.
