Theatregoers looking to engulf themselves in an explosive tale of love and treachery have a treat in store at Warwick Arts Centre.

Puccini’s opera Tosca comes to the venue on Friday April 29 at 7.30pm.

Set against the backdrop of Rome, the Napoleonic Wars and a corrupt Italian regime, the tale is told by international soloists, full orchestra and a highly praised chorus including a boys’ choir with a choirboy solo.

It also features some of the best-love music in opera, including the arias Vissi d’arte and E Lucevan le Stelle,

Directed as a Gothic, Victorian horror story, Tosca is an epic tale of true love and treachery. In order to save her love from execution, Tosca must enter into a deal of seduction with the Chief of Police, an arrangement that ends fatally for all.

The Ellen Kent production is presented by Opera & Ballet International. Opera and Ballet International have previously taken productions to venues including the Royal Albert Hall, London and Leeds Castle.
