ROH, Recorded Live

A romance, a tragedy and a thriller – travel to 19th century Rome with Puccini’s passionate, political opera.

Music:      Giacomo Puccini
Director: Jonathan Kent
Elena Stikina, Bryan Hymel, Alexey Markov

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 Hymel and Alexey Markov bring 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.
