Tosca is the opera that conquered the world. This passionate story of lust, revenge and sacrifice is one of the most successful and beloved operas in the repertoire. Jealous and fiercely loyal, Tosca’s turbulent contradictions compel us. She loves passionately yet holds firm to her faith; she’s overwhelmingly generous while also ruthlessly violent. Tosca is the fire that burns throughout this monumental drama. She is the ultimate Diva.

We are thrilled that Orla Boylan, who stunned audiences in our 2013 The Flying Dutchman, will sing this captivating title role. In this production she is met by men worth fighting for – or against. As Cavaradossi, superstar Simon O’Neill unleashes the Italian hero within as his soaring voice takes flight in one of the best tenor roles ever composed. He meets his match in Phillip Rhodes’ fanatically evil Scarpia. Performing roles they were born to sing, these two New Zealanders bring the drama to this most dramatic of operas.

With Puccini’s powerful and visceral music illuminating the beauty and the ancient faith of the Eternal City, we defy you not to lose your heart to Tosca - and your soul to this extraordinary story. Featuring the famous arias ‘E lucevan le stelle’ and ‘Vissi d’arte’.

Accompanied by the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra.
Featuring the Freemasons NZ Opera Chorus.
Phillip Rhodes performance sponsored by the Kiri Te Kanawa Foundation.
