Drama, passion, and fabulous music -- Giacomo Puccini's operatic thriller is one of the great opera experiences. Dan Ettinger conducts a star cast led by Adrianne Pieczonka as Floria Tosca, Joseph Calleja as Mario Cavaradossi, and Gerald Finley as Baron Scarpia.
Jonathan Kent’s production for The Royal Opera captures the dangerous political turbulence of Rome in 1800. The Chief of Police, Scarpia – one of the most malevolent villains in opera – ruthlessly pursues and tortures enemies of the state. His dark, demonic music contrasts with the expansive melodies of the idealistic lovers, Tosca and Cavaradossi, who express their passion in sublime arias, including "Vissi d’arte" and "E lucevan le stelle." Puccini’s dramatic work was a hit with audiences in its 1900 premiere, and it remains one of the most performed of all operas.
