Lust, betrayal, murder — nothing says drama quite like Puccini’s Tosca, one of the most popular operas of all time. Performances are on select dates, April 7-15, at the magnificent Detroit Opera House.
Amid an unstable 1800s Italy, fiery diva Tosca must fight to save her rebellious lover from an evil police chief. This all new Michigan Opera Theatre – Cincinnati Opera co-production perfectly sets the stage for an exhilarating ride of emotional extremes.
Stephen Lord – “The combination of a new production and the authentic Italian spirit Maestro Valerio Galli brings to this familiar work will create an exciting dynamic for this ‘shabby little shocker!’”
Music by Giacomo Puccini
Libretto by Giuseppe Giacosa and Luigi Illica
Sung in Italian with English supertitles projected above the stage.
