Full of love, lust, murder and political intrigue Tosca is one of the most beloved operas. Tosca’s love for idealistic painter Cavaradossi is without compromise. But with Rome in turmoil, things which were once personal have become political. The malevolent pressure of police chief Baron Scarpia comes to bear on the lovers when he decides he wants Tosca for himself. In his twisted sadistic mind, turning the strength of her passion to his own advantage should be easy, but it has fatal results.
Full of love, lust, murder and political intrigue Jonathan Kent’s taut and intense production comes together with Paul Brown’s historically charged designs and we see love and evil come face to face.
