Tue, 30 June - 6:30 PM

Puccini’s melodrama about a volatile diva, a sadistic police chief, and an idealistic artist has offended and thrilled audiences for more than a century.

No opera is more tied to its setting than Tosca, which takes place in Rome on the morning of June 17, 1800, through dawn the following day. The specified settings for each of the three acts - the Church of Sant’Andrea della Valle, Palazzo Farnese, and Castel Sant’Angelo - are familiar monuments in the city and can still be visited today. While the libretto takes some liberties with the facts, historical issues form a basis for the opera: The people of Rome are awaiting news of Napoleon's invasion of northern Italy, which will decide the fate of their symbolically powerful city.

Soprano Anna Netrebko (Aida, Adriana Lecouvreur), whom the New York Times hailed as “magnificent” when she made her role debut as Tosca in 2018, returns as Puccini’s explosive diva, back by popular demand. Tenor Brian Jagde is the idealistic painter Cavaradossi, and baritone Michael Volle completes the opera’s fatal love triangle as the sinister Scarpia. Bertrand de Billy conducts Sir David McVicar’s stunning production.


Tosca is sung in Italian with English subtitles.

A HD Live screening from the Metropolitan Opera House, New York.
