“By far the best company to bring Russian opera to British audiences” Stage Talk Magazine.

After a successful tour with Carmen and Madama Butterfly last year, Russian State Opera is back with another beautiful production of the greatest opera classic – Tosca. Featuring an impressive cast and accompanied by a delightful live Orchestra, this Puccini masterpiece will be sure to intrigue and fascinate you.

Tosca is a melodrama where love and politics collide, and murder takes place at the highest level.

Originally set in Rome in 1800s, it tells the story of two idealistic lovers, Tosca and Cavaradossi. Their trust is set to be tested by Scarpia, the ruthless police officer who has no boundaries. Scarpia has sentenced Cavaradossi to death. The officer is prepared to let Cavaradossi go if Tosca is willing to spend the night with Scarpia…

This haunting tragedy with its breath-taking arias will transport you to the world of romantic Rome full of drama, passion, love, and betrayal.

Tosca is one of the most emotionally engaging and popular Operas of all time and will be returning to Scarborough Spa on Friday the 1st of September 2017.
