Puccini Festival – Tosca
July 16, 2022 @ 9:00 pm€19,50
16 and 29 July
13 and 26 August
Tosca is undoubtedly Puccini’s most dramatic opera, cruelty and sadism provide the backdrop for the story of love and death set in Rome in the 1800s.
At the Puccini Festival 2022 it will be presented in a production by Pier Luigi Pizzi, with Enrico Calesso on the podium of the Puccini Festival Orchestra.
Pizzi, who also designed the sets and costumes, makes a temporal shift from the Rome of the Napoleonic era to the Italy of the late 1930s.
“I exploited the political tensions and the arrogance of power of this historical moment.”
The Puccini Festival is the most important opera festivals in Italy and the only one in the world dedicated to Puccini. It takes place in the summer, in the months of July and August, in the places that were inspirational for the Maestro. The Festival offers the opportunity to listen to great stars of world opera interpreting Puccini’s masterpieces, staged in a large open-air theatre on the shores of Lake Massaciuccoli, right in front of the Puccini House Museum.
