Dawn breaks on 18th-century Rome, where zealous painter Cavaradossi and passionate singer Tosca are deeply in love. When Cavaradossi hides escaped political prisoner Angelotti from the villainous chief of police Scarpia, a tragic conflict unfurls. Caught between loyalty to her rebel lover and Scarpia’s web of deceit, Tosca must take matters into her own hands—but no one is guaranteed to get out alive.

Puccini’s breathtaking opera, with its renowned “Vissi d’arte” aria, makes a triumphant return to WNO. Elegant sets depicting grand Roman scenes create the backdrop to one of opera’s most suspenseful and popular dramas. With gripping political corruption, soaring music, and the legendary devastating finale, Tosca is a sumptuous tale of ill-fated love that amazes and captivates new and longtime opera lovers alike.
