Presented by: Opera Australia

Opera comes to Margaret Court Arena for the first time ever, in Opera Australia's new five-star production of Tosca.

Opera’s greatest thriller is a taut tale of passion and betrayal, taking place over just 24 hours in Rome. Renowned prima donna Tosca is in love with Cavaradossi, a painter and revolutionary. When the sadistic Chief of Police Scarpia tries to crush them, our heroine finds the strength to do the unspeakable.

Puccini’s music is sensational: when the final note rings into silence, and you pick your jaw up off the floor, you’ll feel an extraordinary emotional release.

Tosca is the perfect first taste of opera, and one opera lovers return to again and again, to experience how music can bring great stories to emotional highs. Tosca has it all: romance, action and an unforgettable ending.

Performed in the Margaret Court Arena with all the drama and scale of an epic theatrical experience, this will be very special night at the opera.
