Tosca - Opera On The Big Screen

Birmingham opera fans won’t have to travel as far as Covent Garden to see the Royal Opera House’s acclaimed production of Tosca, as Opera Anywhere will be beaming it onto a big screen at the Botanical Gardens.

With powerful music, a gripping storyline set in the turbulent backdrop of Rome in 1800, and a tragic ending, the Puccini classic remains a firm favourite amongst opera lovers around the world, since its premiere in 1900.
Distinguished director Jonathan Kent’s revival features a cast of star singers, including Angela Gheorghiu, Jonas Kaufmann and Bryn Terfel, while the Royal Opera Chorus and Orchestra of the Royal Opera House are under the baton of music director Antonio Pappano.

Opera Anywhere said: ‘The pageantry of church ritual, the darkness of a brooding study with its hidden torture chamber and the false optimism of the light of a Roman dawn all throw into relief the love of the beautiful diva Tosca, the idealism of her lover Cavaradossi and the deadly, destructive obsession of the malevolent Chief of Police, Scarpia.

‘Drama, passion and fabulous music – Tosca is one of opera’s great nights out.’
