“Of all operatic dramas, Tosca thrives or dies with the performance of the three principals. As actors, all three in this production excel, as do those in the minor parts.” -- MusicWeb International
Tosca premiered in 1900 at the Teatro Costanzi in Rome. It is one of the world’s most frequently performed operas and is known as much for its gripping drama as for its appealing score. The setting is Rome, where Tosca, a beautiful and famous singer, battles to save her lover Mario from the sadistic police chief Scarpia. The role of Tosca has been long considered a proving ground for great operatic actresses.
