The art of aging gracefully begins with music from the heart.


By Ron Harwood

2007-2008 Season
Independence Studio on 3 Production History

How many opera divas does it take to fill an old folks home? Heaven knows! When opera great Jean Horton arrives just in time to sing at Verdi's birthday concert, she must be convinced to perform for the first time in over 20 years. She refuses. Two friends and an ex-husband plot to change her mind. Oscar winner Ron Harwood's (The Pianist) delicate play is a sweet ode to the art of growing old gracefully. In his finale, we can all take pride in a life well-lived and a memory to celebrate it.
