Tosca: Russian State Ballet and Opera House

osca is set in Rome in 1800. It was a very unsettling time for the Italians due to political turmoil. Tosca, the beautiful singer and Cavaradossi’s lover is tricked by Scarpia to go to Cavaradossi’s house so Scarpia’s minors can follow her there. Scarpia soon learns that the police cannot find Angelotti (one of the republicans, that escaped prison) but that they have arrested Cavaradossi. In order to seduce Tosca, Scarpia tortures Cavaradossi…

Tosca is one of the iconic operas of all times. There are three famous arias, ‘Recondita armonia (Hidden harmony), Vissi d’arte, vissi d’amore (I live for art, I lived for love) and ‘E lucevan le stele’ (And the stars shone).

The duet of Tosca and Scarpia is the most powerful and breath taking scene.

If you’ve never seen opera before, you will love this full orchestra experience with fantastic colourful costumes, exquisite singing and wonderful tunes that the audience will still be humming on their way home, making this a must-see opera production for everyone.
