Tosca Pendant Watch

Exclusive to the Metropolitan Opera, our elegant pendant watch celebrates Giacomo Puccini’s venerated opera, Tosca.

Inspired by an antique piece, it is gold plated with a scratch-resistant surface, measures approximately 1 ½ inches in diameter and drops from a 27 inch long, open link, gold chain with clasp. High-precision Japanese movement ensures accuracy and reliability. Created to be lightweight and comfortable to wear.

In 1900, famed Milanese publishing company, Edizioni Ricordi, designed a stunning poster announcing Tosca’s world premiere. A reproduction of that vintage lithograph is depicted on the face of this striking pendant.

Puccini’s melodrama about a volatile diva, a sadistic police chief, and an idealistic artist has offended and thrilled audiences for more than a century. Critics, for their part, have often had problems with Tosca’s rather grungy subject matter, the directness and intensity of its score, and the crowd-pleasing dramatic opportunities it provides for its lead roles. But these same aspects have made Tosca one of a handful of iconic works that seem to represent opera in the public imagination. Tosca’s popularity is further secured by a superb and exhilarating dramatic sweep, a driving score of abundant melody and theatrical shrewdness, and a career-defining title role.

Premiere: Teatro Costanzi, Rome, 1900.
Met Opera and U.S. premiere: February 4, 1901.

History

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.
