About the Event

Tosca is a tragic story of passion and jealousy. It tells the tale of a tempestuous opera singer Floria Tosca, as she fights to save her lover, Cavaradossi. Set in Rome in the 1940s, this new production by Opera Brava, with its powerful score and imaginative orchestration brings to light tragedies that happen in relationships. The plot centres around three main characters – Rome’s diva, Floria Tosca, her lover, Mario Cavaradossi (a painter and republican) and the corrupt Chief of Police, Baron Scarpia.

The Chief of Police has long lusted after Tosca and when he suspects Cavaradossi of assisting an escaped political prisoner, seizes the opportunity to kill two birds with one stone. In order to have her for himself, he will manipulate Tosca into revealing both the prisoner’s hiding place and Cavaradossi’s involvement.

When Cavaradossi is captured, Scarpia offers Tosca a horrific bargain – she must give herself to Scarpia, or her lover is killed… what will she choose, and who will survive?

Accompanied by chamber orchestra. Sung in English.
