"It is the summer of 1953," according to press notes. "Margaret Johnson is touring the Tuscan countryside with her daughter, Clara. While sight-seeing, Clara loses her hat in a sudden gust. As if guided by an unseen hand, the hat lands at the feet of Fabrizio Naccarelli, a handsome Florentine. Romance is sparked immediately between Clara and Fabrizio. As their love blossoms, Margaret is faced with a difficult choice: should she reveal a truth that could threaten her daughter’s happiness or late fate run its course?"

The Redondo Beach performing Arts Center is located at 1935 Manahattan Beach Blvd. Tickets range from $30-$65 and can be purchased by calling (310) 372-4477 or by visiting Civic Light Opera’s website at
