Puccini paints in primary colours in Tosca. Three themes of defiance, sacrifice and betrayal drive the plot. Each of the three leading characters is confronted with the choice either to honor or to betray. And each makes their choice, facing the consequences unflinchingly.
A traditional production from New Zealand Opera directed by Stuart Maunder comes to His Majesty’s Theatre, starring Antoinette Halloran as Tosca, Paul O’Neill as Cavaradossi and Teddy Tahu Rhodes as Scarpia.
