Tosca

The white-hot drama of an explosive love triangle opens Skylight’s new season. A fiery, tempestuous and deeply religious opera singer is trapped between her lover, an aristocratic painter, and the despicable, corrupt chief of police whose lust for her is impossible to ignore. One of opera’s most lethal and bloody tales, Tosca will keep you at the edge of your seat as it races toward a terrible finale. Music by Giacomo Puccini Libretto by Luigi Illica
