Tosca - Puccini

Performed in English

Libretto by G. Giacosa and Luigi Illica

English Translation by John Gutman


Set in 1920s Italy to the backdrop of post war societal change and political turmoil, Opera in a Box’s production of Puccini’s Tosca recounts the confrontations felt by a rising women’s liberation movement, and  the challenges of post-war fascism. Through the stories of Tosca, an opera singer, Cavaradossi, a painter, and Scarpia, the Chief of Police, we explore how relationship can be affected by the nature of the time.
