Tosca

No-one is safe in the Rome of 1800. Under Baron Scarpia corruption and suspicion hang over the city, virtue and humanity are cruelly stamped out.

The world of opera singer Floria Tosca is about to be turned upside down. She is suspicious of her lover Mario’s fidelity. Little does she realize that he is at the centre of a struggle that will lead to tragedy. Soon she herself will become the object of Scarpia’s insatiable lust and she will be forced to ask what she has done to deserve this.

Once decried as a “shabby little shocker”, Tosca has become one of the best loved of all operas. The combination of its fast paced plot, high tension and the poignancy of the great arias “Vissi d’arte” and “E lucevan le stelle” ensure that Tosca never fails to enthral.

Michael Blakemore’s period set production of this pulsating thriller promises to set your emotions on a knife-edge.

Cast includes Elisabete Matos as Floria Tosca, Geraint Dodd as Cavaradossi, Robert Hayward as Scarpia.

Sung in Italian with surtitles in English with an electronic subtitles screen above the stage carrying a translation in English.
