Opera Kings Head Theatre
Paris. August, 1944. As the Second World War rages on, lovers Tosca and Cavaradossi give refuge to a political prisoner and find themselves ensnared in the machinations of the tyrannical head of the Paris Gestapo, Scarpia. As Charles De Gaulle’s liberation movement advances and US troops tighten their net around the Nazi occupiers, everything Tosca holds dear is about to be torn apart.
The King’s Head Theatre’s brand new production of Puccini’s searing thriller of power and passion relocates the action to the heart of the twentieth century’s defining conflict. With rousing melodies, an intimate setting and a brand new libretto by Adam Spreadbury-Maher and Becca Marriott, this is Tosca as you’ve never seen it before!
