Puccini's great melodrama is a tempestous, emotional tale of the celebrated soprano, Floria Tosca, who is in love with the handsome painter, Mario Cavaradossi. When Cavaradossi's political activism finds him in the crosshairs of the evil Baron Scarpia, a fierce battle of wills ensues in this famed opera of cruelty and deception. With its riveting themes of political intrigue, abuse of power and love gone wrong, this scandalous saga could be ripped straight from today’s headlines. A new, stylized production built by the Florentine brings Puccini’s melodies and the story’s dramatic turn of events to the forefront in a refreshed take on this classic masterwork.
