Passion, politics, and power collide in the story of Tosca—a renowned diva, in Rome in 1800. An artist activist has won her heart, and his revolutionary sympathies provoke the wrath of Scarpia, the corrupt chief of police. Her devotion and moral resistance are challenged by abuses of power, attempted rape, and tragedy—as this high drama builds to its haunting finale.
