About the Event
Experience opera like never before in this astonishing performance of masterworks by Puccini at Torre del Lago's remarkable Gran Teatro all'aperto.
'Tosca' is an opera in three acts by Giacomo Puccini, based on Victorien Sardou’s melodramatic play 'La Tosca' (1887). The plot centers on political and romantic intrigues in Rome in 1800. Despite the fact that several of Puccini’s colleagues advised him against adapting the play, the composer acquired the rights and created an opera that has been an audience favourite since its premiere in Rome in 1900.
