about this event

Into the romantic world of an idealistic painter Cavaradossi
and his sensuous lover Tosca comes the malevolence of Baron Scarpia, Chief of
Police, with fatal results. Elena Stikina, Bryan Hymel and Alexey Markov bring
to life one of the best loved operas in The Royal Opera repertory:
Puccini’s Tosca. From the demonic chords with which it famously
begins to the violent twist of the opera’s shock ending, the tension never lets
up for a moment. Love and evil come – thrillingly – face to face in Jonathan
Kent’s intense production.
