About the Event

Discover the stunning architecture of the Sydney Opera House and immerse yourself in an ultimate concert experience that will awaken your understanding of opera. Scarpia growls "Ah! Tosca" with lust in his voice and danger in his eyes, sparking a thrilling tale of passion and betrayal in Rome over just 24 hours. Tosca must find the strength to face the unspeakable to save her lover from the sadistic Chief of Police, Scarpia.

Puccini's music in Tosca is sensational, from the overpowering choral power of the Te Deum to Tosca's ode to art 'Vissi d'arte' and the haunting tenor showpiece 'E lucevan le stelle'. As Cavaradossi faces death, the emotional release at the final note will leave you captivated. Opera North presents this acclaimed five‐star production with director Edward Dick crafting tension on stage amidst a stunning renaissance fresco and dramatic lighting by Lee Curran.

Tosca is the perfect introduction to opera, offering romance, action, and an unforgettable ending that will keep opera lovers coming back for more. The trio of brilliant performers elevate the production, with Giselle Allen and Karah Son as Tosca, Young Woo Kim as Cavaradossi, and Gevorg Hakobyan and Warwick Fyfe alternating in the role of Scarpia. Don't miss this extraordinary experience at the Sydney Opera House.

Sydney Opera House

The Sydney Opera House hosts performances from many genres in Sydney, Australia. One of the 20th Century's most famous and distinctive structures, as well as a UNESCO World Heritage site, the Opera House was designed by Danish architect Jørn Utzon as a multiple performance venue. The complex hosts more than 1.2 million people annually with a season of 1,500 performances. Performers include international and local guest artists, and three resident companies: the Sydney Theatre Company, Opera Australia, and the Sydney Symphony Orchestra.

Giacomo Puccini

Giacomo Puccini was an Italian opera composer of the late 19th century. He was considered one of the greatest composers of the Italian Opera, second only to Verdi. His early works were characterised by features of the traditional 19th century romantic Italian opera. Later, his style developed into the realistic verismo style, which inspired him to write his most famous masterpieces and became one of the leading exponents of the style. His most renowned works La bohème (1896), Tosca (1900), Madama Butterfly (1904), and Turandot (1924), all are popular operas played in the most prestigious venues of the classical world.
