Tosca (Puccini) - Met Opera

Puccini’s thrilling Tosca is a story of love, terror, the abuse of power, and the unquenchable longing for freedom.

When an escaped political prisoner takes refuge in a church, an opera singer and a painter are drawn into a twisting plot that puts them at the mercy of the secret police and its network of torturers and spies.

 Rivalling the splendour of Franco Zeffirelli’s Napoleonic-era sets and costumes, Sir David McVicar’s ravishing new production offers a splendid backdrop for extraordinary singing.

Sonya Yoncheva stars as the titular prima donna, alongside Vittorio Grigolo as her artist lover and Željko Lučić as the villainous police chief—one of his signature roles. Emmanuel Villaume conducts.

Act I: 17:55 - 18:55
