Puccini: Tosca

Puccini: Tosca

Giacomo Puccini's fifth opera was first staged at the Teatro Costanzi in Rome in 14th January 1900. Tosca is an opera that arouses powerful feelings, written by a musician who excelled in the characterisation of weak figures. It is one of the most popular of Puccini's works, for it successfully conveys the irresistible force of elemental emotions and passions: jealousy, desire, love of life, despair in the face of death. In this sense Tosca is much more like the "desperate passion" of Manon Lescaut than the crepuscular intimism of Boheme.
