The Show

From the early 1890s Giacomo Puccini had toyed with adapting French playwright Victorien Sardou's gripping melodrama La Tosca into an opera, but only began serious work following the premiere of the critically acclaimed La bohème in 1896.

Employing La bohème's gifted librettists Giuseppe Giacosa and Luigi Illica to streamline Sardou's complicated plot, Puccini's Tosca premiered in 1900.

With the city gripped by political unrest, fears of violence plagued the premiere at Rome's Teatro Costanzi.

However, Tosca?opened without incident, and although unpopular with critics who disliked its violence, it became an immediate success with the public and has remained a favourite ever since.

Puccini portrays the idealism of Tosca and her lover Cavaradossi through radiant, expansive music, including Act I's duet 'Qual occhio al mondo' (What eyes of this world), Cavaradossi's ardent aria 'Recondita armonia' (Hidden harmony) and Tosca's despairing Act II prayer 'Vissi d'arte' (I lived for my art).

Scarpia's music, by contrast, is dark and terrifying ? from the demonic chords that open the opera to the violence of his Act II exchanges with Tosca.
