One of the most frequently included in the repertoire of the world opera houses G.

The plot of the opera resembles a modern thriller with historical basis. Italian singer Tosca commits suicide, but even in the death scene, the director Luca Ronconi was able to express the beauty of the exalted soul of his heroine. The director emphasized human passions, or rather the love story of the painter Mario Cavaradossi and celebrated singer Floria Tosca, who by the will of fate were involved in political events and became victims of despotism, torture and execution.
Margherita Palli’s set design transfers the viewers to the historical events of the bygone times, when the French army commanded by Napoleon invaded Italian the year 1800. The images of buildings and temples –everything is represented in a distorted way, as a symbol of the fact that where there was a war, there is a place not only for material damage, but also for feelings and experiences. Vera Marzot’s beautiful costumes complement the visual aspect described with historical power.
