Set in Rome, and taking place over the course of 24 hours in June of 1800, Puccini’s Tosca is the ultimate in opera melodrama.

Tosca combines political intrigue, love, loyalty, betrayal and murder with powerful music to create an unforgettably operatic experience.

We are thrilled to present Leah Crocetto in the title role of Tosca. Returning favorite Mark Delavan sings the role of Scarpia, one of the great villains in not just opera, but in the pantheon of Western storytelling.

Police chief Scarpia is hunting escaped political prisoner Cesare Angelotti. Angelotti is aided by artist Mario Cavaradossi, who is dating beautiful opera star Floria Tosca. Scarpia imprisons and tortures Cavaradossi to force Tosca to reveal Angelotti’s hiding place, and has even more sadistic intentions as well. Will Tosca submit? Will Scarpia keep his end of the bargain? See for yourself why Tosca is one of the most powerful operas ever written.

Run Time: 2 hours 30 minutes, including two intermissions.
