About Ellen Kent’s Tosca
Senbla presents Opera International’s award-winning Ellen Kent Production with international soloists, highly-praised chorus and full orchestra – Puccini’s TOSCA
An explosion of love and treachery.
Delighted to welcome back Vladimir Dragos and Petru Racovita as Scarpia and the international stars, Elena Dee and Alyona Kistenyova*.
“Brilliantly sung” —The Times (Royal Albert Hall)
This traditional production is a heady mixture of true love, torture and treachery, with two of the best roles for tenor and soprano, plus a truly blood-curdling villain.
A magnificent new set with towering marble pillars, fabulous costumes, and featuring a boys’ choir with a shepherd’s boy solo, this most popular of operas is sure to delight with its tender, moving arias Vissi d’arte and E Lucevan le Stelle.
Sung in Italian with English surtitles. Please note: some seats may have a restricted view of the surtitles.
The production features two Royal Greyhounds.
