Tosca by Giacomo Puccini
A sensational drama about bigotry and hypocrisy

“Tosca” was based on the play of the same name by Victorien Sardou (1887), which Puccini saw starring Sarah Bernhardt in 1889. The opera premiered at the Teatro Costanzi in Rome on 14th January, 1900 and has remained immensly popular ever since, with its story of love and death set against a historical and political background at the time of the restoration of the Pope and Napoleon’s campaigns in Italy.

A sensational drama, with a plot that is anything but banal, treating themes such as bigotry and hypocrisy, political power and corruption, Tosca displays Puccini’s innovative musical techniques, differing from his previous operas such as the more lyrical “Bohème”, which range from reviving old Church modes to anticipating the music of Schoenberg, Stravinsky and Debussy.

During the summer period, La Fenice reprises the popular productions of the house. Tosca directed by Serena Sinigaglia is one of them, with symbolic but figurative decorations, and costumes of the era. The voice of baritone Sebastian Catana is a treat in the role of the disagreeable Scarpia. The performance lasts about 2 hour 45 minutes.

This work is conducted by Daniele Rustioni and Marco Paladin, directed by Serena Sinigalia. Sets & costumes by Maria Spazzi & Federica Ponissi
