The heroine is a renowned prima donna, her hero a charismatic artist, and the villain the corrupt head of the secret police.
From love to blackmail, and revenge to murder… Tosca will leave you questioning just how far you would go to save the ones you love.

Sublime one moment and gut wrenching the next, Puccini‘s music overflows with emotion and iconic tunes including: ‘Vissi d’arte’ and the powerful ‘Te deum’.

Written over 120 years ago, Tosca still thrills with the perfect pulse of a taut crime drama, portraying humanity at its best and very worst. Edward Dick returns to direct this five-star production.
