Tosca is Giacomo Puccini\'s gripping drama filled with torture, treachery, lust, execution, and suicide. Scarpia, the chief of police, wants only two things: to recapture the escaped prisoner Angelotti and to seduce Tosca, an opera singer of incredible voice and beauty. Tosca is in love with Cavaradossi, an artist and sympathizer of Angelotti. After arresting Cavaradossi for harboring Angelotti, Scarpia plays with Tosca\'s emotions, promising to free Cavaradossi if Tosca will succumb to Scarpia\'s desires. But Tosca has a plan of her own, all of which unfolds with tragic consequences from which no one can escape. Soaring and sensuous, filled with such beautiful arias as Tosca\'s \"Vissi d\'arte\", Cavaradossi\'s \"Recondita armonia\" and the powerful choral piece \"Te Deum\", Tosca has some of opera\'s most beloved music, and one of opera\'s most gripping plots. Sung in Italian with projected English translations.
