Can an emperor forgive the woman who wants to marry or murder him, while also pardoning the would-be assassin who is his best friend? Jealousy, passion and forgiveness take center stage in one of Mozart's last operatic works written just before his death. Lothar Koenigs conducts.

Finally, you'll enter Brookfield Place to learn how it was affected by the attacks and see the Memorial of the Eleven Tears, which honors the employees of Amex who perished on the 94th floor of the North Tower.
