Puccini’s Tosca is one of the most popular operas in the world and it is not difficult to tell why. It is a passionate drama full of contrasts in which daily life might prove to be more unpredictable than the most adventurous dream. The love of the beautiful opera singer Tosca and an artist Cavaradossi is poisoned by the cruel and powerful police chief Scarpia, who entangles them in his stealthy plans. There is a struggle between love, political intrigues, confidence and thirst for power that knows no mercy. In the end, there are no winners…

As one of the greatest 20th-century melody masters, Puccini has used bold colours and memorable melodies to create imaginative and enticing portraits for his characters. The highlights of the opera include one of the most beautiful arias in the soprano repertoire Vissi d’arte and one of the most famous tenor arias E lucevan le stelle that have won the hearts of both opera lovers as well as first-timers.
