About the performance

The first performance of the opera Tosca by Giacomo Puccini took place at the Teatro Costanzi in Rome on the 14th of January 1900. To create this opera, the composer was inspired by Sarah Bernhardt, who performed Tosca in the play of the same name by Victorien Sardou. For the first time Puccini saw her in this role in 1889, then he visited the performance again and met her. He had been dreaming of writing an opera to this plot for many years and when he finally got hold of the libretto by Luigi Illica and Giuseppe Giacosa, he started the work immediately. On the 29th of September 1899, the opera was completed.

Premiered on April 21, 2021.

Presented with two intervals.

Libretto by Giuseppe Giacosa and Luigi Illica based on Victorien Sardou’s play of the same name

Synopsis

Act I

Political fugitive Cesare Angelotti, a former Consul of the Roman Republic, is hiding in Sant'Andrea della Valle basilica, having escaped from prison. His sister, the Marchesa Attavanti, has prepared women’s clothes for him so that he can leave Rome unrecognised.

The Sacristan appears. He is unhappy with his job and with Mario Cavaradossi, the artist who is painting the church. The artist himself enters. The Sacristan recognises a beautiful parishioner in the painted image of Mary Magdalene, and Cavaradossi reflects on how different beauty can be. Grumbling, the Sacristan leaves, and Angelotti draws Cavaradossi’s attention. The artist is ready to help the fugitive, but Floria Tosca, a famous singer, comes in at this moment, and Angelotti hides again, taking Cavaradossi’s lunch basket with him.
