Love, lust, betrayal, murder – the charismatic diva Tosca is at the center of it all! Puccini’s tragic masterpiece is a powder keg of politics and religion, making it one of the world’s most popular operas. As storms of repression and rebellion rage through Italy, the diva is forced to play a real-life role she never imagined, fighting to save the love of her life, Cavaradossi, from the corrupt Baron Scarpia, who vows to kill his romantic rival if he cannot have her.
Sung in Italian with English translations above the stage.
Our theme for Season 17 is a timely one as the great powers struggle on the world stage.
Our three mainstage operas feature the struggles of three very different women. What price will they pay for the freedom of their loved ones as they scheme, deceive, and kill to achieve it?
In Tosca, politics and intrigue swirl around a famous diva as she tries to free her lover from a tyrannical police chief. A wife disguises herself as a man to liberate her husband from prison in Fidelio. The heroine of L’Italiana in Algeri is a clever enchantress who must trick her way to free herself, her fiancé, and her people.
