About

A masterpiece synonymous with Italian operatic greatness, Puccini’s Tosca shines brightly in a 2001 cinematic adaptation by French film director Benoît Jacquot! The bold idea leads to thrilling results, as Jacquot’s thoughtful and dramatic style allows his actors’ talents to fill every frame with the passion and emotion that have made Tosca such an enduring favorite among operagoers.

Puccini’s deliciously melodramatic tale of love, desire, betrayal, and revenge comes to life in this silver screen-worthy production with lush set design, gorgeous costumes, and tour de force performances by Angela Gheorghiu and Roberto Alagna—opera’s real-life “it” couple at the time—as Tosca and Cavaradossi, plus Ruggero Raimondi as Scarpia.
