Come and enjoy Giacomo Puccini’s musical thriller TOSCA as pre-HD transmission preparation for the January 27, 2018 performance. This opera is the pinnacle of the verismo style: love scenes, torture, attempted rape, murder and a suicide finale! Tosca is one of the most riveting operas in the repertory. On DVD: Angela Gheorghiu, Jonas Kaufmann and Sir Bryn Terfel.
