First performed: January 14, 1900, Teatro Costanzi, Rome

Both a political thriller and timeless romance, Puccini’s Tosca is a tale of courage, patriotism, and selfless love in the face of tyranny. Through the lush melodies, we feel every moment of corruption, heartbreak, and love. Join Floria Tosca, Puccini’s fieriest heroine, as she loves ferociously, speaks truth to power, and triumphs as only a diva can.
