Sung in Italian with English surtitles. From its famous, dissonant opening chords, Tosca conjures up a world of political instability and menace. The Chief of Police, Scarpia - one of the most malevolent villains in opera - ruthlessly pursues and tortures enemies of the state. His dark, demonic music contrasts with the expansive melodies of the idealistic lovers, Tosca and Cavaradossi, who express their passion in sublime arias. Giacomo Puccini's dramatic work was an instant hit with audiences on its 1900 premiere and it remains one of the most performed of all operas.
