A satirical, behind-the-scenes sister-story to Puccini’s Tosca as imagined by one of the wittiest and most admired Italian playwright and actress, Franca Valeri. Tosca and the two downstairs is directed by Laura Caparrotti, Artistic Director of KIT, and its English translation is by Natasha Lardera.
The play will be acted by Laura Caparrotti and Marta Mondelli in Italian with English supertitles by the prestigious Prescott Studio in Italy. KIT-Kairos Italy Theater is a rarity: a bilingual Italian-English theater company that presents Italian theatrical works of literary merit. It is named for Kairos, the Greek god of the fleeting moment.
This program is organized under the High Patronage of the President of the Italian Republic and in collaboration with NYU DC as part of the 19th Week of Italian Language in the World, an event promoted yearly by the Italian diplomatic and cultural network to foster the diffusion and study of the Italian language in the world.
