Michael Blakemore’s production of Tosca plays out with a straight bat, period appropriate, detailed sets and clear delineation of character. He lets Puccini work his magic, each act building in tension and wrapping up on cliff-hangers that make you long for the next act like your latest Netflix binge.
‘A whirlwind production’: TOSCA (Welsh National Opera) – Touring ★★★★
Tosca is a great introduction to opera. It has an incredible score, an excellent cast and an airtight story. Filled with love, murder and tragedy, it’s a whirlwind production sure to keep you on the edge of your seats. The audience was gripped from the very beginning.
