When her lover, Cavaradossi, faces execution for aiding a political prisoner, Tosca must make an unthinkable choice: submit to the loathsome Baron Scarpia, chief of police ... or send her true love to the firing squad. Her decision brings the opera to a breathtaking climax.
A passionate tour de force, Puccini's thriller has been beloved by audiences since its premiere. Don't miss the revival of this truly grand production, which critics have called "thrilling" and "a Tosca to remember."
Sung in Italian with English projections above the stage.
