Puccini: Tosca

Puccini's thrilling Tosca is a story of love, terror, the abuse of power, and the unquenchable longing for freedom.

When an escaped political prisoner takes refuge in a church, an opera singer and a painter are drawn into a twisting plot that puts them at the mercy of the secret police and its network of torturers and spies. Rivalling the splendour of Franco Zeffirelli's Napoleonic-era sets and costumes, Sir David McVicar's ravishing new production offers a splendid backdrop for extraordinary singing. Kristine Opolais stars as the titular prima donna, alongside Vittorio Grigolo as her artist‐lover and Bryn Terfel as the villainous police chief — one of his signature roles. Andris Nelsons conducts.
