ROH. Tosca

[no certificate]

2012, 180 mins

Powerful music and a heartrendingly tragic story combine in Puccini's ever-popular Tosca.

Jonathan Kent's detailed production draws on the historical backdrop of Rome in 1800, a political world of control and suspicion beautifully evoked in Paul Brown's lavish designs. 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, the painter Cavaradossi, and the deadly, destructive obsession of the malevolent Chief of Police, Scarpia.

Drama, passion and the fabulous music of Puccini: Tosca is one of opera's great nights out.
