Wednesday, October 9 – 7:30 PM 
Friday, October 11 – 7:30 PM
Sunday, October 13 – 2:00 PM

Rows B-D: $50, Rows E-M: $55,
Balcony: $65

Directed by Douglas Anderson, guest conductor Jeffrey Rink and the OCM Orchestra. With Tosca sung by Suzanne Kantorski (who most recently sang Suor Angelica in OCM’s Il Trittico), James Flora as Cavaradossi (Mitch in last year’s Streetcar Named Desire), and Rubin Casas as Scarpia (Banquo in 2016’s Macbeth).

Tosca premiered in Rome in 1900, and since then has become one of the most-performed operas of all time. Known for its searing drama and arching melodies, it contains three of the most famous arias ever written. At the center of the drama are three vibrant, larger-than-life characters: Tosca, a diva-like actor who is in love with painter and activist Cavaradossi, and Scarpia, the corrupt military officer who will use his power to have Tosca for himself. The opera’s depiction of the abuse of power during wartime seams sadly relevant today.
