Tosca – The Royal Opera

Presented by California Film Institute at Christopher B. Smith Rafael Film Center, San Rafael CA

Jan 23 2022
Tosca – The Royal Opera

From The Royal Opera in HD, Puccini’s classic opera

Playing in-person at the Smith Rafael Film Center

Into the romantic world of an idealistic painter Cavaradossi and his sensuous lover Tosca comes the malevolence of Baron Scarpia, Chief of Police, with fatal results.

Elena Stikina, Bryan Hymel and Alexey Markov bring to life one of the best loved operas in The Royal Opera repertory: Puccini’s Tosca.

From the demonic chords with which it famously begins to the violent twist of the opera’s shock ending, the tension never lets up for a moment. Love and evil come – thrillingly – face to face in Jonathan Kent’s intense production. Sung in Italian with English subtitles.
