Tosca: Gran Teatre del Liceu
Tosca: Gran Teatre del Liceu in Barcelona
About the EventClose
Tosca, the magnificent melodramma by Giacomo Puccini, will be peformed this season at the Gran Teatre del Liceu, Barcelona's famous Opera House.
Three is a number of special relevance to Tosca: three settings in Rome in the year 1800, three main characters (Tosca, Cavaradossi and Scarpia), and the three rules of classical drama – action, place and time – which, surprisingly, still underlie this work from the dawn of the 20th century. For every passion that is part of contradictory human nature – from love to power and lust – finds its place in the three settings and each is expressed with forcefulness and violence.
