    David McVicar's acclaimed production of Verdi's potent and tragic opera is conducted by Alexander Joel, with an excellent cast led by Dimitri Platanias, Lucy Crowe and Michael Fabiano.

  • Tosca

    Wednesday 7th February 2018 7.15pm (doors 6.45pm)

    Drama, passion and fabulous music - Puccini's operatic thriller is one of the great opera experiences. Dan Ettinger directs Adrianne Pieczonks, Joseph Calleja and Gerald Finley live from The Royal Opera House, Covent Garden.  Jonathan Kent's production captures the dangerous political turbulance of Rome in 1800.  The Chief of Police, Scarpia - one of the most malevolent villains in opera - ruthlessly pursues and tortures enemies of the state.  His dark, demonic music contrasts with the expansive melodies of the idealistic lovers, Tosca and Cavaradossi, who express their passion in sublime arias, including 'Vissi d'arte' and 'E lucevan le stelle'.
