THE highly acclaimed Russian State Opera returns to The Floral Pavilion with one of the world’s best loved operas. Tosca, by Giacomo Puccini, will be sung in Italian with English surtitles and features an impressive cast accompanied by a live orchestra with over 30 musicians
The opera is a melodrama where love and politics collide, and murder takes place at the highest level. Tosca is one of the most emotionally engaging and popular operas of all time and tours to the New Brighton theatre for one night only.
Originally set in Rome in 1800s, it tells the story of two idealistic lovers, Tosca and Cavaradossi. Their trust is set to be tested by Scarpia, the ruthless police officer who has no boundaries. Scarpia has sentenced Cavaradossi to death. The officer is prepared to let Cavaradossi go if Tosca is willing to spend the night with Scarpia…
Producer Alexej Ignatow, of Amande Concerts Ltd, who has co-ordinated the UK tour, said: “We are constantly on the lookout…to ensure that our opera and ballet audiences get a chance to experience a wide spectrum of …classic pieces…We are able to offer national audiences in various theatres an unforgettable experience at a fraction of the price, all without sacrificing quality. So, it is very close to my heart to continue working with theatres all over the UK to deliver top quality productions every year and make new converts wherever we go. No experience is needed to enjoy these classics. Our sets and costume designs, as well as the informative programmes make the productions very accessible and most of all, enjoyable. For opera, English surtitles make it easy to follow the story as you listen to the performance sung in its original language.”
