About

Tosca

On the a BIG screen near you!

Filmed live on stage at the Royal Opera House January 2022

 (PG12 advised)


A romance, a tragedy and a thriller – travel to 19th century Rome with Puccini’s passionate, political opera.


Into the romantic world of an idealistic painter Cavaradossi and his sensuous lover Tosca comes the malevolence of Baron Scarpia, Chief of Police, with fatal results. Elena Stikina, Bryan Hymel and Alexey Markov bring to life one of the best loved operas in The Royal Opera repertory: Puccini’s Tosca. From the demonic chords with which it famously begins to the violent twist of the opera’s shock ending, the tension never lets up for a moment. Love and evil come – thrillingly – face to face in Jonathan Kent’s intense production.
