Musica Lirica Opera presentsTosca by Giacomo Puccini, sung in English with orchestra. Tosca, along with La Bohème and Madam Butterfly is among Puccini’s greatest and most dramatic masterpieces.  Great melodies sung by massively recognisable characters combine with intense scenes of power and imagination to produce an evening of unforgettable tension and emotion.

The jealous and fiery opera singer, Floria Tosca, is coerced into betraying her lover, the painter, Mario Cavaradossi by the evil and lecherous Baron Scarpia intent on having his evil way with her.  How does it all end?  Not well for anyone. The opera described by George Bernard Shaw as “a shabby little shocker” has become one of the world’s favourite pieces of music theatre.

Well experienced of Puccini, Musica Lirica Opera has also produced the three Puccini operas: Gianni Schicchi, Sister Angelica and Il Tabarro which together make up his Il Trittico and the company has future plans for Madam Butterfly. Musica Lirica which can be described as a “pro-am” society consisting of both professional and talented amateur musicians has recently completed a successful tour of Lehar’s The Merry Widow and is looking forward to bringing its productions to new audiences in the North West.
