Passion, glamour, love worth dying for – Anthony Besch’s Tosca has it all. In 1940s Rome, in the shadow of Mussolini’s tyrannical rule, the ill-fated lovers come to life against a backdrop of political corruption and intrigue. With Peter Rice’s designs providing a spectacular setting to equal the drama, this superb production is beloved the world over. Don’t miss it as it comes home to the Scottish Opera stage.
'Scottish Opera’s Tosca is flawless, from start to finish a feast for the eyes.' The Herald
Puccini’s music, at times heart-breakingly tender, at others powerful and harrowing, captures the sweeping span of the story – from the exquisite stillness of a silent dawn in Rome to the raw drama of Tosca’s final, desperate plight. The must-see internationally renowned cast includes award-winning soprano Natalya Romaniw (Eugene Onegin 2018), tenor Gwyn Hughes Jones (Il trovatore 2015) and baritone Roland Wood (Pelléas & Mélisande 2017). Music Director Stuart Stratford conducts.
