TOSCA • Teatro San Carlo Napoli | May 3, 2022
TOSCA – Teatro San Carlo Naples
One of Italy’s greatest opera composers, Giacomo Puccini, has composed the opera Tosca.
The opera plays in Rome in 1800 and premiered in 1900 at the Teatro Costanzi in Rome. The story is fictitious but based on historical events of the war in the Roman church-state. The opera in 3 acts deals with the consul Cesare Angelotti, who was imprisoned in Castel Sant’Angelo. Thanks to the help of his friend Cavaradossi he was able to escape and found shelter in the Villa Cavaradossis. However, Tosca, Cavaradossi’s lover, became jealous.
The police chief Baron Scarpia let search for Angelotti and tortured his friend Cavaradossi, but he did not want to betray his friend. Under this pressure, Tosca collapses and reveals the hiding place of Angelotti, who commits suicide.
To save her lover, Tosca sells herself to the police chief Scarpia. When Scarpia signed the escort letter for Cavaradossi, Tosca stabs the police chief Scarpia to flee with Cavaradossi.
However, the opera ends tragically for all actors: Cavaradossi, who was to be executed only for the sake of appearances, was shot. Appalled, Tosca realized that Sciarpa had betrayed her. In the meantime, the stabbed Sciarpa had been found, whereupon Tosca plunges from Castel Sant’Angelo.
