Arizona Opera is proud to present the first Mainstage production of its 2017/18 Season, Giacomo Puccini's Tosca, one of the most exciting and dramatic operas of all time. Set in the turmoil of Rome in 1800, Tosca is one of opera's greatest stories, filled with heartbreak and revenge. The beautiful and fiery Italian diva, Floria Tosca, is passionately in love with the artist, Mario Cavaradossi, both dreaming of a life of passion together.

Caught in the political intrigues of Rome and ensnared by a sinister web spun by Baron Scarpia, the Chief of Police, Tosca is desperately looking for a way out.
