One of the best-loved operas of all time, Tosca soars with high-stakes drama and exhilarating music, including Tosca’s sweeping aria “Vissi d’arte,” one of Puccini’s most thrilling creations. We’re proud to premiere a brand-new, period production featuring sumptuous sets and costumes from acclaimed designer Robert Perdziola (Metropolitan Opera, Lyric Opera of Chicago, San Francisco Opera, Santa Fe Opera).

Evelina Dobraceva, a soprano with a “gleaming, focused, and powerful” (The New York Times) voice, leads the cast in the title role. Metropolitan Opera regular Marcello Giordani brings his “stunning, easy top notes” (Opera News) as her ardent lover, Cavaradossi. The menacing villain Scarpia will be sung by Cincinnati Opera favorite Gordon Hawkins.
