She’s a singer, he’s a painter and they’re both trying to avoid the cops. This story might not have the most famous Italian parapet in opera, but the leap is legend.

Opera Highlights:

The perspective painting technique on Italian Ercole Sormani’s wing-and-drop scenery—which accurately captures Tosca’s iconic locations throughout Rome, including the church of Sant’Andrea della Valle, the Farnese Palace, and Castel Sant’Angelo—is a spectacle not to be missed.

Plot Summary:

Fiery young diva Floria Tosca is forced to play a role she never imagined when she becomes trapped between her freedom-fighting lover and a ruthless police chief whose lust for her overrides his duty to his country. This explosive triangle comes to a heart-stopping conclusion in one of opera’s most intense dramas.

Sung in Italian with English supertitles.

Runtime: Approximately 2 hours 30 minutes, including two intermissions.
