Sinéad Campbell Wallace stars in Puccini’s high-octane opera presented in the visually stunning setting of a battle-scarred 1950s Rome.

A celebrated opera singer. Her lover, a famous painter. His friend, an escaped prisoner. And a manipulative, power-drunk chief of police who has dark intents for all three. What could go wrong? Everything! Puccini’s most concentrated opera is high in drama and rich in spine-tingling arias.

Sung in Italian with English surtitles.

Running time: 3 hours with 2 intervals.

Tosca...In Focus, a free online introduction to the opera, takes place on 7 July. Booking available here.
