Why See Arizona Opera - Tosca?
Arizona Opera brings the drama with their presentation of Puccini's classic melodrama. Reeling with passion, revenge and heartbreak, it's a timeless tragedy concerning the beauty of the opera singer Tosca, her devotion for her painter lover Cavaradossi and the envy of Baron Scarpia, the evil chief of police.
NAPOLEON APPROACHES - THE STORY OF TOSCA
Under the cloud of rebellion on all sides, Rome is in the middle of a tumultuous change as the Royalist regime is winning over the Republic. Whilst the merciless Baron Scarpia is rounding up rebels and jailing them, Tosca rehearses in a church before meeting her fugitive lover Cavaradossi. When the embittered Baron catches up with him he falls for Tosca, much to her anger, and tortures her lover in front of him. If she yields to him, she is promised his life under the guise of a false execution. But Scarpia's meanness knows no bounds and before the day is out, all life will be extinguished.
