Tosca
Live from the Royal Opera House, London
Wednesday 7 February - 7.15pm
Tickets: £15, 16 & under £10
Tosca is one of the great evenings of opera, and from its strident opening chords conjures up a world of political instability and menace.

Jonathan Kentís production for The Royal Opera captures the dangerous political turbulence of Rome in 1800. The Chief of Police, Scarpia (Gerald Finley) ruthlessly pursues and tortures enemies of the state. His dark, demonic music contrasts with the expansive melodies of the lovers, Tosca (Adrianne Pieczonka) and Cavaradossi (Joseph Calleja), who express their passion in sublime arias, including Vissi díarte and E lucevan le stelle.

Pucciniís dramatic work was a hit on its 1900 premiere and remains one of the most performed of all operas - with its gripping plot and glorious music, itís easy to see why. Conducted by Dan Ettinger.
