THE BEAUTIFUL DIVA, FLORIA TOSCA HAS LIVED FOR HER ART, AND LIVED FOR LOVE, BUT MUST MAKE THE ULTIMATE CHOICE: WHETHER TO GIVE HERSELF TO ANOTHER, IN ORDER TO SAVE
THE BEAUTIFUL DIVA, FLORIA TOSCA HAS LIVED FOR HER ART, AND LIVED FOR LOVE, BUT MUST MAKE THE ULTIMATE CHOICE: WHETHER TO GIVE HERSELF TO ANOTHER, IN ORDER TO SAVE HER LOVER.
Puccini’s political operatic thriller is set in Rome in June 1800 (during the Napoleonic wars and a time of great political unrest). Unlike many operas, the action takes place over less than 24 hours, the events in the opera occur in almost real-time. The plot centers around three main characters – Rome’s favorite diva Floria Tosca (Sonja Krenek), the painter and political activist Mario Cavaradossi (Joshua Collier), and the corrupt Chief of Police, Baron Scarpia (Wayne Hu). Scarpia has long lusted after Tosca, and when he suspects Cavaradossi of assisting Angelotti (Brian J. Alvarado), an escaped political prisoner, he seizes the opportunity to kill two birds with one stone. He will manipulate Tosca into revealing the prisoner’s hiding place thus proving Cavaradossi’s treason, and with him out of the way, he will have her for himself.
