Description

Tosca is one of the most lethal operas. None of the central charachters make it to the end alive, hero or villain. Unsurprisingly then, it's a thrilling melodrama often dismissed as one dimensional. However you would be foolish to go in with this attitude. Opera Brava have set this production in Rome in the 1940's during the war and they take Puccini's overtly theatrical tale and make it astonishingly moving with an unusual twist in the final death scene .......
