One of the all-time great operas, Tosca combines drama, passion and glorious music. The instantly recognizable music has been used countless times in film and television, most memorably in Quantum of Solace. Set in Rome, the story follows painter Mario Cavaradossi who is captured and sentenced to death by Scarpia, the sadistic Chief of Police. Mario’s life can be saved and his freedom granted providing, his lover, Tosca, gives herself to Scarpia. Conducted by Dan Ettinger, this production stars the Canadian soprano Adrianne Pieczonka as Tosca. Maltese tenor Joseph Calleja sings the role of Cavaradossi, alongside Canadian bass-baritone Gerald Finley, singing the role of Scarpia. With exclusive behind-the-scenes footage and interviews with the cast and creative team.
