1. Tosca

Sung in Italian with English Subtitles “Tosca” by the Russian State Opera features an impressive cast, accompanied by a delightful live Orchestra. The opera classic tells the story of two idealistic lovers, Tosca and Cavaradossi. Their loyalty to each other is put to a cruel test by Scarpia, the ruthless and unscrupulous police officer, who sentences Cavaradossi to death. However, the officer is prepared to let Cavaradossi go if Tosca is willing to spend the night with him.

This haunting tragedy with its breath-taking arias will transport you to a romantic Rome full of drama, passion, love, and betrayal.

One of the most emotionally engaging and popular Operas of all time, Tosca is sure to intrigue and fascinate you!
