Passion, glamour, love worth dying for – Anthony Besch’s Tosca has it all.
In 1940s Rome, in the shadow of Mussolini’s tyrannical rule, a tale of ill-fated lovers unfolds against a backdrop of political corruption and intrigue. With Peter Rice’s designs providing a spectacular setting to equal the drama, this superb production is beloved the world over.
Puccini’s music, at times heartbreakingly tender, at others powerful and harrowing, captures the sweeping span of the story – from the exquisite stillness of a silent dawn in Rome to the raw drama of Tosca’s final, desperate plight.
‘Scottish Opera’s Tosca is flawless, from start to finish a feast for the eyes.' THE HERALD
