In this concert film, capturing a live performance from May 2021, the tragic tale of Floria Tosca takes on a completely new dimension. Seen through the eyes of an omniscient narrator and focusing on the three main characters, this innovative version of Puccini’s beloved work bridges opera and storytelling, highlighting major themes from the original.

Grammy-winning soprano Ana María Martínez received audience and critical acclaim in her title role debut, with Opera News raving “her rich upper voice and flaming high notes rang out handsomely.” Tenor Brian Jagde is “a robust Cavaradossi” (Philadelphia Inquirer), while baritone Quinn Kelsey is “a Scarpia for the ages” (Parterre Box). The three principals are joined by narrator Charlotte Blake Alston and the Opera Philadelphia Chorus and Orchestra led by Jack Mulroney Music Director Corrado Rovaris.

The piece is a dedication to all who, as Tosca sings in the famous aria “Vissi d’arte,” devote themselves to art, particularly in challenging times.

How to purchase:  The Drama of Tosca is now available on-demand with a Channel subscription or with a seven-day rental for $20.
