Event Information

Opera Idaho presents Puccini's TOSCA.  

Discounts available for seniors and students.

Giacomo Puccini’s melodrama about a volatile diva, a sadistic police chief, and an idealistic artist contains many famous arias, including “Vissi d’arte” (Tosca) and “E lucevan le stelle” (Cavaradossi). Soprano Eleni Calenos returns as the ill-fated title character – Eleni has previously appeared with Opera Idaho in the title roles of La bohème and Madama Butterfly, and as Micaela in Carmen

Both during his lifetime and in posterity, Puccini's success outstripped other Italian opera composers of his time, and he has been matched in this regard by only a handful of composers in the entire history of opera. Three of Puccini's operas (ToscaLa bohème and Madama Butterfly) rank among the top ten works performed worldwide. This will be Opera Idaho’s fifth production of Tosca, making the opera one of the company’s most oft-performed operas. The most recent production was in 2003.
