The Tosca Project, created and staged by Carey Perloff and Val Caniparoli, is a novel dance and theater collaboration, looking into the last 100 years of life in San Francisco’s North Beach hotspot: Tosca Cafe.  A mainstage production of the American Conservatory Theater in collaboration with the San Francisco Ballet, The Tosca Project, according to YBCA, brings to light the history of the Tosca Cafe, which was brimming with “Beat poets, opera singers, Russian émigrés, and other eclectic characters since the 1920s.”  Set to a score ranging from Hendrix to Puccini, The Tosca Project investigates the history and characters who have  shaped San Francisco.

It premieres on Thursday, June 3, 2010 and runs through June 27; tickets can be purchased here: Tickets
