One of Giacomo Puccini’s most famous operas will be performed on stage in St Albans next week.

The Russian State Opera presents Tosca live at The Alban Arena on Wednesday, September 20 at 7.30pm.

Tosca is a dramatic masterpiece where love and politics collide, and murder takes place at the highest level.

Featuring an impressive cast and accompanied by a large orchestra with over 30 musicians, this classic and iconic opera is set in Rome at the time of Napoleon’s advance on the city.

In what was a very unsettling time for Italy, due to much political turmoil, the production follows the beautiful singer Tosca in a tale that weaves together love, betrayal and melodrama.

Tosca is sung in Italian with English surtitles.

Tickets cost £31, concessions £2 off.
