About this show

Puccini's Tosca is an irresistible combination of passion, tenderness, pathos, and despair that immediately grabs your attention and races to its terrible conclusion. Floria Tosca, a beautiful opera diva, tries to save her lover's life by giving herself to the dreaded chief of police, Baron Scarpia. The situation turns deadly, and even Scarpia's murder may not stop his diabolical plan. This dazzling production by Giulio Chazalettes features soprano Patricia Racette, tenor Frank Porretta, and DC favorite bass-baritone Alan Held. Plácido Domingo conducts this timeless classic.
