About this Event

Floria Tosca may have many admirers but she only has eyes for one man, the painter Cavaradossi. But the malevolent Chief of Police, Scarpia, has other ideas and wants her for himself. As he schemes to trick the lovers and get what he wants, dramatic and tragic events unfold, leaving Tosca stood alone clutching a dagger in her bloodstained hands, and with a shocking final twist to follow.

The turbulent backdrop of Rome during the Napoleon invasion is an apt setting for this thrilling story of love, lust, loyalty and corruption. Puccini characterises the drama through his exquisite melodies and orchestration, and fabulous arias that have made Tosca one of the best-loved operas in the world.

Sung in Italian, with English and Welsh surtitles.
