Puccini’s “Tosca”
Clubs & Activities!, Thursday

Puccini’s “Tosca”

September 29, 2022 @7pm Casella Theater Barn Opera presents a performance of Puccini’s “Tosca." Set in Rome at the time of Napoleon’s invasion of Italy, “Tosca” is a roller coaster story of love, lust, murder, and political intrigue. Carried on the wings of Puccini’s richly romantic score, “Tosca” is one of the world’s most loved operas. A tragic story of passion and jealousy, it follows the tempestuous opera singer Floria Tosca as she fights to save her lover Cavaradossi from the sadistic police chief Scarpia. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for seniors and alumni. Tickets can be reserved in advance by calling the Casella Box Office at (802) 468-1119.
