Puccini’s Tosca is the quintessential opera. Iconic, breathlessly paced, romantic, murderous, tragic. From its first performance it has held every stage and been interpreted by history’s greatest singers. Every character in it is opera royalty. Floria Tosca, the passionate diva with the fiery temperament, Mario Cavaradossi a painter, lover and ardent freedom fighter and Baron Scarpia one of the most famous villains in all music. The story of their lust, passion, ardor and the consequences they bring make this a thriller like no other.Resident Stage Director Tara Brahnam makes her mainstage directing debut, the culmination of her time at OSJ as a Resident Artist.
