Puccinis Tosca is one of the worlds best-loved operas, brimming with lust, corruption and intrigue.
When the firebrand revolutionary Cavaradossi is imprisoned, Tosca is faced with an impossible choice: submitting to the desires of the sadistic chief of police, or letting her lover be executed.
Directed by award-winning Blanche McIntyre, and featuring a trio of powerful British artists for Tosca, Cavaradossi and the malevolent Scarpia, ETO’s new production is sure to be a night of passion.
A new production. Sung in Italian with subtitles.
There will be a pre-show talk at 18.30 in the Norie Miller Room. Please reserve a free ticket at the Box Office.
