What’s On: NZ Opera’s Tosca


March 8, 10, 14 & 16 at 7.30pm, Isaac Theatre Royal, Christchurch

Love, lust and political intrigue fill the world of the passionate singer Tosca. When her lover Cavaradossi is imprisoned by police chief Scarpia, Tosca takes matters into her own hands with dramatic consequences.  Set in 1950’s Italy, this New Zealand Opera production was universally praised during its 2015 seasons in Auckland and Wellington.  The Dominion Post described it as, “…a production that ticks all the boxes,” while the NZ Herald declared, “…you will be spellbound…not to be missed.”

Christchurch now has its chance to see this acclaimed production, with Simon O’Neill and Orla Boylan reprising their roles as Mario Cavaradossi and Floria Tosca from the 2015 season.  Taking on the role of one of opera’s most loved villains, Teddy Tahu Rhodes brings his formidable voice and presence to the brutal Baron Scarpia.
