Lies, lust and corruption turn a tale of love into a struggle for survival in Puccini’s Tosca.  Amid the bloodshed of revolutionary Rome, the diva Tosca battles the treacherous police chief Scarpia for the life of her lover, Cavaradossi.  Set to Puccini’s intensely passionate music, this gripping melodrama is quintessential opera!

In Gounod’s operatic retelling of the famous legend, an elderly scholar sells his soul to the devil Méphistophélès for a chance to seduce the beautiful Marguerite. Faust’s diabolical struggle between good and evil must surely end in tragedy...

Libretto by Cesare Sterbini

Conducted by Craig Kier
Directed by José Maria Condemi

Sung in Italian with projected English translations

The wily barber Figaro aids Count Almaviva in wooing the radiant maiden, Rosina. With masterful disguises and hilarious antics, romance unfurls right under the nose of an aghast Dr. Bartolo, intent on marrying Rosina himself. Rossini’s delightful comedy The Barber of Seville has elicited peals of laughter from opera lovers for generations!
