Adelaide Festival Theatre



Puccini created some of the greatest operas ever written, but few surpass Tosca for grandeur, beauty and drama! The return of this incredible opera to Adelaide has been long-awaited, and this production will not disappoint. Soprano Kate Ladner returns to the Festival Theatre stage as the actress Floria Tosca – a role she was born to play.

Her lover, the painter Mario Cavaradossi, will be sung by the golden voiced tenor Rosario La Spina and as his arch nemesis Baron Scarpia, baritone Mario Bellanova once again brings his powerful presence to bear.

What price will Scarpia demand of Tosca to free Cavaradossi, and what bargain will she broker to gain his freedom?Tosca also contains spectacular choral music, with the State Opera Chorus in full flight. You cannot miss the incredible Church scene, alone worth the price of admission! The Adelaide Symphony Orchestra brings its customary brilliance to this opera – a rousing celebration to cap off a stunning 40th birthday year!
