Based on Elizabeth Spencer's 1960 novel (which was adapted for the screen in 1962), the show tells the story of Margaret and Clara Johnson, a mother and daughter who, while vacationing in Florence, encounter a young Italian man—Fabrizio. As he and Clara quickly fall in love, Margaret must reconcile her daughter's pursuit of happiness with a family secret that could threaten their romance.

Fleming is also slated to reprise her performance for L.A. Opera and Chicago’s Lyric Opera later this year. Cameron has been announced to join her for the L.A. engagement.
