Tony Bennett to attend European premiere of ‘Zen Of Bennett’ at Tuscan Sun Fest
Fresh from the premiere of the acclaimed documentary The Zen Of Bennett at last month’s Tribeca Film Festival, Tony Bennett will attend the movie’s European premiere at the annual Tuscan Sun Festival, taking place this year in Florence, Italy, June 11-18.
Bennett will also perform at the historic Teatro della Pergola opera house on June 18, as part of the arts festival’s 24 Hour Plays project: He will choose four songs that will then inspire the four plays that will be written, rehearsed and performed within a period of 24 hours, and will then perform each song before the corresponding play.
The Zen Of Bennett will be screened by Tribeca Firenze, a new film programming entity operated jointly by the Tribeca Film Festival’s parent company Tribeca Enterprises and performing arts/lifestyle events management company IMG Artists (IMG Artists stages the Tuscan Sun Festival). Tribeca Firenze will present an international film schedule over five days, with titles tying-in with Tuscan Sun Festival’s offerings, also including music, theater, food, wine, and cultural and historical exhibitions.Back to Press
