Tosca Poster v13

Verismo opera at its finest

Puccini’s taut drama comes to the Independent Theatre in October for a limited season.

Originally set in Rome in June 1800, with Rome threatened by Napoleon’s invasion of Italy,  Tosca narrows in on three characters, emotionally and politically bound in desire and betrayal.

When her lover, Cavaradossi, is captured by Rome’s secret police, Floria Tosca is forced to make a deal with police chief Baron Scarpia. But Tosca decides that she will leave nothing to chance when it comes to saving her lover.

Tosca – Anna-Louise Cole
Cavaradossi – Martin Buckingham
Scarpia – Sitiveni Talei

Conductor – Steven Stanke

Sung in Italian, with English surtitles
