Metropolitan Opera: 'Tosca'

Metropolitan Opera production of "Falstaff"
Metropolitan Opera

Hear the Metropolitan Opera's recent production of "Tosca," Puccini's intense, highly successful melodrama, on Saturday at 1 p.m. on Classical IPR.

The opera is set in 1800s Rome as the city weathers conflict between Napoleon's army and Austria's.

It's based on a play by Victorien Sardou about a painter and his jealous beloved, Tosca, and their run-ins with a brutal police chief.

Angela Gheorghiu is Tosca, Matthew Polenzani is Cavaradossi and Domingo Hindoyan conducts.

Read the libretto in English.
