The thrilling dramatic soprano Violeta Urmana and acclaimed tenor Salvatore Licitra make their Company debuts, while the incomparable Samuel Ramey returns as the unscrupulous chief of police, Scarpia.

Ian Judge, after his recent success with last season's Roméo et Juliette, directs Puccini's Tosca - a thrilling synthesis of romance, spectacle and intrigue. When a famous prima donna finds herself caught between the man she loves and the sinister police chief who desires her, the diva is forced to play a deadly game for her lover's life.

The explosive love triangle races to a riveting conclusion in an unpredictable production conducted by Kent Nagano.

A tempestuous diva. Seduction and murder. Fabulous singing. Puccini's Tosca is what opera is all about.
