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 Hymeland Alexey Markovbring 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.
Elena Stikina (Floria Tosca), Bryan Hymel (Mario Cavaradossi), Alexey Markov (BaronScarpia), Hubert Francis (Spoletta), Yuriy Yurchuk (Cesare Angelotti), Jeremy White (Sacristan), Jihoon Kim (Sciarrone)
