Jonathan Kent’s handsome production for The Royal Opera captures the dangerous political turbulence of Rome in 1800. The Chief of Police, Scarpia – one of the most malevolent villains in opera – ruthlessly pursues and tortures enemies of the state. His dark, demonic music contrasts with the expansive melodies of the idealistic lovers, Tosca and Cavaradossi. With its gripping plot and glorious music, Giacomo Puccini’s dramatic work became a hit with audiences from its 1900 premiere and remains one of the most performed of all operas.
