Wander through Italy with Renée Fleming in the Broadway hit The Light in the Piazza.

Margaret and her daughter Clara are taking in the wonders of Florence during a languid 1950s summer. A windborne hat sparks an intense romance between Clara and local dreamer Fabrizio. But Clara isn’t quite what she appears, and soon they must confront a secret kept in the shadows for far too long.

Four-time Grammy Award winner Renée Fleming stars in this enchanting Broadway musical which won six Tony Awards, including Best Original Score.

Multiple Olivier Award winner Daniel Evans directs this semi-staged production, including sumptuous costumes.
