This is the kind of artistically electrifying and socially charged musical that will live in your mind and your ears long after the curtain falls.

Why See San Francisco Opera - Tosca?

All Rome trembled before him. Except her

Intrigue and betrayal abound in this epic new production of Puccini's tragic tale of the ill-fated singer, who's lover's political leanings find her in a web of misfortune and murder that ultimately leads to the downfall of all involved. Dramatic and bursting with romance and tragedy, the story of the opera singer and her unwavering morality is one of the most enjoyed the world over.

Under the cloud of rebellion on all sides, Rome is in the middle of a tumultuous change as the Royalist regime is winning over the Republic. Whilst the merciless Baron Scarpia is rounding up rebels and jailing them, Tosca rehearses in a church before meeting her lover Cavaradossi and his fugitive friend Angelotti. When the embittered Baron catches up with him he falls for Tosca, much to her anger, and tortures her lover in front of him. If she yields to him, she is promised his life under the guise of a false execution. But Scarpia's meanness knows no bounds and before the day is out, all life will be extinguished.
