Synonymous with grace, beauty and artistry, Oscar-winning actress Sophia Loren will captivate audiences with an intimate onstage conversation and Q&A at the California Center for the Arts, Escondido on Sunday, November 24, 2019 at 4pm in the Concert Hall.
The prolific career of this legendary star spans over five decades earning a remarkable array of notable accolades, including the first Academy Award presented for a foreign-language role with Two Women.
Decades later, in 1991, Sophia Loren received an Honorary Award from the Academy in acknowledgement of her indelible contributions to world cinema.
Until 1999, Sophia Loren was the only performer ever to win an Oscar for a foreign-language film. She received an honorary Oscar in 1980 for Lifetime Achievement.
Even today, at 84, Loren remains “la forza” – the earth mother of us all. She is one of the last surviving stars from the Golden Age of Hollywood.
Along with An Evening with Sophia Loren show, the Center will be hosting a free movie screening of Houseboat starring Cary Grant and Sophia Loren at 1:30pm and a post-show backstage reception immediately after the show for $35.
The post show reception menu includes Tomato and Mozzarella on a Pesto Crostini with a Balsamic Drizzle, Charcuterie Platter with Baguettes, Baked Artichoke, Tomato and Basil Pasta with an Alfredo Sauce of Mozzarella, Ricotta and Parmesan, Roasted Vegetable Platter and Cannoli & Tiramisu Desserts.
