Puccini’s beloved opera returns to LondonGiacomo Puccini’s beloved, startling opera Tosca is revived in a stunning new production this year. The incredible tale of politics, love, murder and intrigue is performed by the English National Opera, at the London Coliseum.
Beautiful singer Tosca is deeply in love with artist Cavaradossi, but corrupt and cruel police chief Scarpia is competing for her affections. When Scarpia arrests Cavaradossi for aiding an escaped political prisoner, he gives Tosca a choice: reveal the prisoner’s location or watch Cavaradossi die. As Tosca becomes more desperate to reject Scarpia’s advances and derail his plans, she resorts to deadly tactics.
Puccini’s Tosca opera entwines one woman’s fight for freedom with the political landscape of 19th century Rome. At the London Coliseum, Leo Hussain conducts the composer’s dramatic and romantic score (including Cavaradossi’s aria, “Recondita armonia” and Tosca’s “Vissi d’arte”) in a sumptuous production directed by Christof Loy.
The Tosca London cast includes Sinead Campbell Wallace as Tosca, Adam Smith as Cavaradossi and Noel Bouley as Scarpia.
This tumultuous but gripping story is one of the most blood-soaked and passionate operas - and one of the most famous in the world. Book Tosca tickets to experience this incredible production in the West End.
