Puccini's tragic tale of revenge and murder

Buy Tickets For Metropolitan Opera: ToscaBuy Tickets

One of Opera's Most Powerful Works

The great Placido Domingo will take up the conductor's baton for Met Opera's new staging of Pucini's masterpiece. It's an opera that holds a special significance for the former Three Tenors singer, as the main role of Cavaradossi is the part he has played more than any other over the course of his career. Taking up his mantle in this production will be a trio of tenors, Massimo Giordano, Marcello Giordani and Roberto Aronica. The lead role will also be played by numerous sopranos - Oksana Dyka, Angela Gheorghiu, Maria Guleghina, and Lyudmila Monastyrska - all embodying different aspects of Puccini's most famous character.

First performed in 1900, this tragic tale traces the fate the eponymous heroine, whose lover's political leanings find her in a web of misfortune and murder that leads to the downfall of all involved.
