About this show

While touring Florence with her mother, Clara meets by chance the handsome Fabrizio. As their tender romance blossoms, Clara's mother struggles to conceal a family secret which may put an end to Clara's happiness as well as to her own. Arena's own Molly Smith directs an intimate version of the musical that won six Tony Awards (including Best Score). Aided by the lush music of Adam Guettel (Floyd Collins), Craig Lucas (Prelude to a Kiss) has distilled Elizabeth Spencer's novella to a poignant tale about the essence of love, critics have hailed as "absolutely transfixing" (San Francisco Chronicle).
