Few figures have left as indelible a mark in opera as Giacomo Puccini, the writer of classics like Madame Butterfly, Turandot,
and last but not least, Tosca. In all his plays, there are intense relationships to be explored between men and women, and
Tosca has a story that will keep you riveted. Get your Tosca
tickets for when the show comes to Philadelphia.
Tosca is actually an adaptation of a play written by Victorien Sardou when the playwright was involved with the actress
Sarah Bernhardt. In the late 19th century, Sardou's Tosca became a hit on the stage, and Puccini felt compelled to bring it
to the opera. The story of a beautiful singer seeking love among political tumult has enchanted viewers for ages.
of Music is the perfect place to host an opera like Tosca. The building was erected in 1857 and is recognized for being
the oldest opera house in the country that is still used for the opera. The Philly Academy of Music has earned itself the
affectionate nickname, "Grand Old Lady of Broad Street."
If you love the opera, then you need to be familiar with Puccini. Tosca is one of the composer's finest works, and nothing
compares to seeing it on stage at Philadelphia's Academy of Music. Buy opera
