Opera On Tap will continue its Operatic Book Club series with a setting of Edith Wharton’s short story Roman Fever, by American composer Robert Ward. The story is set in a terrace restaurant overlooking the Roman Forum where two widows and their daughters have met by chance. As their daughters talk of falling in love, the full story of the widows’ meeting in the same place twenty years earlier is revealed.
