Tosca is a roller coaster story of love, lust, murder and political intrigue. With Puccini‘s richly romantic score, it is one of the world’s most loved operas.
A tragic story of passion and jealousy, it tells the story of the tempestuous opera singer Floria Tosca, as she fights to save her lover Cavaradossi from the sadistic police chief Scarpia.
"The greatest threat to power is love."
With her artist beau Cavaradossi competing for her affections against the sadistic police chief Scarpia (Noel Bouley), Tosca’s story becomes intertwined with the tumultuous political landscape of Rome itself.
Already the talk of the town, opera singer Tosca becomes increasingly desperate to stop Scarpia’s plans and must resort to deadly means to wrest back her freedom from those who would suppress it. After all: when passion and politics collide, love can prove a fatal weakness.

Our filtration system has been equipped with hospital-grade HEPA filters to provide additional protection. Our front of house areas are cleaned before we open the doors to you and then during the performance.
