Fathom Events Presents Puccini’s Tosca

Fathom Events Presents ToscaThe Metropolitan Opera performs Tosca live—and you can watch in theaters on January 27th (or a recording on the 31st).

La Tosca, is a melodramatic piece set in Rome in June 1800, with the Kingdom of Naples’s control of Rome threatened by Napoleon’s invasion of Italy. It contains depictions of torture, murder and suicide, as well as some of Puccini’s best-known lyrical arias.

The dramatic force of Tosca and its characters continues to fascinate modern performers and audiences, and the work remains one of the most frequently performed operas.

Rivaling the splendor of Franco Zeffirelli’s Napoleonic-era sets and costumes, Sir David McVicar’s ravishing new production offers a splendid backdrop for extraordinary singing. Sonya Yoncheva will make her role debut as the title prima donna alongside Vittorio Grigolo and Željko Lucic.

We love the idea behind Fathom Events, to use local movie theaters to show performances—including opera, dance, and concerts—that would otherwise not be available due to distance. Plus there are no bad seats in the house…and it’s a fraction of the cost.

Music by Giacomo Puccini. In Italian with English subtitles.
