Tosca herself is the ultimate diva, passionate and jealous, generous and yet able to be ruthlessly violent. The dramatic force of Tosca and its characters fascinates both performers and audiences, making it one of the most frequently performed operas.

The action takes place in Rome about 1800, when the Kingdom of Naples’ control of Rome is threatened by Napoleon’s invasion of Italy. The opera includes depictions of torture, murder and suicide, but Puccini softens this brutality and deepens the emotional response of the characters and their relationships with exquisite, intimate and passionate music.

By attending this seminar in advance of the New Zealand Opera performance, you will enhance your experience of Tosca, which is on at the St James Theatre in Wellington from 10–17 October.
