The year is 1800. Rome is caught in the middle of a war between Napoleon and the Austrian empire, and republican sympathizers are on the run from the police. Spying, double-crossing, and torture have become the order of the day. Tosca would do anything to protect her lover, the painter Cavaradossi — a fact that the lustful police chief Scarpia is all too ready to exploit. When Cavaradossi is accused of harboring political prisoners, Scarpia asks Tosca to make an unthinkable decision. Little does he know how fiercely she will fight to protect herself and those she loves.
Although written over 100 years ago, Tosca remains undeniably relevant to the political struggles and gender power dynamics of the 21st century. This production of Puccini’s iconic opera will be led by the powerhouse team of OTSL Artistic Director James Robinson and Principal Conductor Daniela Candillari.
