About the work

Giacomo Puccini is an author who portrays the cruel world of violence, hatred and selfish passions, as well as the world of love beyond the grave, with extraordinary dramaturgical sophistication. His world is not a world of great politics or romantic ideals of human liberation. It is a world of psychological miniature drawing, a complex world of interrelationships between small and large human stories. In the opera Tosca, the singing star Floria Tosca falls into the hands of the sadistic head of the secret police, Baron Scarpi, due to unfavorable circumstances. He demands the maximum price for the release of her lover, the painter Cavaradossi - her honor. Puccini depicts this tense dramatic conflict in a captivating musical language that has been winning the hearts of audiences around the world with its emotionality and melodic beauty for more than a hundred years
