Warner Theatre Puccini's Tosca


68 Main St, Torrington, CT Phone: 860-489-7180.

he Warner Theatre will present Puccini's TOSCA: Live in Rome starring Placido Domingo and Catherine Malfitano in the Nancy Marine Studio Theatre on Saturday, April 1 at 1:00 pm as a fundraiser to benefit opera programming at the Warner.  Tickets are $25.  A complimentary lecture by Nunzio DeFilippis will be offered to all ticket holders at 11:00 am. A one-hour post-opera dessert and wine reception will be offered in the Studio Lobby for $15. This “live” version of Puccini’s superbly dramatic opera was recorded in Rome in the exact locations and at the precise times of day as Puccini had written into his score. The action opens in Rome’s beautiful 16th-century church of Sant’Andrea della Valle, where Cavaradossi (Placido Domingo) is innocently painting, and moves to the Farnese Palace where Tosca (Catherine Malfitano) dramatically stabs the lustful Scarpia (Ruggero Raimondi), and finally to the battlements of the Castle Sant’Angelo at dawn the following day where Cavaradossi is cruelly killed, and Tosca takes her own life.  It is conducted by Zubin Mehta.
