Spanish tenor José Ferrero makes his Scottish Opera debut as Cavaradossi in Puccini’s powerful and tender drama.

Anthony Besch’s celebrated production has travelled to opera houses around the world since it was first created for Scottish Opera in 1980.  Masterfully conceived by a consummate storyteller, Besch’s much-loved production transports Puccini’s powerful drama to Fascist Italy in the 1930’s, a setting entirely in tune with the dark intensity of this passionate tale.

Puccini’s music, at times heartbreakingly tender, at times powerful and harrowing, captures the sweeping span of this epic story – from the exquisite stillness of a silent dawn in Rome, to the raw drama of Tosca’s final, desperate plight.  Susannah Glanville, star of Opera North’s 2009 production, returns to the role of Tosca and English baritone Robert Poulton is Scarpia.  Spanish tenor José Ferrero makes his Scottish Opera debut as Cavaradossi.
