    In a special concert adaptation, the tragic tale of Tosca takes on a completely new dimension. Seen through the eyes of an omniscient narrator, this innovative version of Puccini’s beloved work bridges opera and storytelling, highlighting major themes from the original. Created to address concerns around audience and artist safety, The Drama of Tosca is 90 minutes (with no intermission) and focuses on the three principal characters. They are joined by the spoken narrator, full orchestra, and adult chorus.

    GRAMMY Award-winning soprano Ana María Martínez makes her company and role debuts as the fiery opera singer Floria Tosca, who takes matters into her own hands when the dreaded chief of police Baron Scarpia (baritone Quinn Kelsey in his company and role debuts) hunts for her lover, the zealous painter Mario Cavaradossi (tenor Brian Jagde in his company debut).
