Powerful music, a gripping story and a tragic end: Puccini’s ever–popular TOSCA is performed at the Royal Opera House with a fabulous cast. Among the star singers in this revival are Angela Gheorghiu, Jonas Kaufmann and Bryn Terfel, performing such great set pieces as the Act I ‘Te Deum’ and the arias ‘Vissi d’arte’ and ‘E lucevan le stelle.’ The detailed production draws on the historical backdrop of Rome in 1800, a political world of control and suspicion contrasted with love of the beautiful diva Tosca, the idealism of her lover Cavaradossi, and the deadly obsession of the malevolent Chief of Police.
TWO PERFORMANCES ONLY! Tickets are $20, available in advance at the box office and online.
