Coming up in July, 2024: Puccini’s Tosca

A tale of politics and passion

Ah, Rome! The ancient and fabled city is backdrop to Puccini’s Tosca, Opera Wilmington’s production this July. When popular diva Tosca becomes entangled in power politics involving the local chief of police (who has designs on Tosca)  trouble and tragedy ensue. The image above is of the Castel Sant’Angelo, where Tosca’s lover perishes and she kills herself in a dramatic finish.

As usual, there will be four performances: July 19, 21, 26 and 28. The two Friday evening performances begin at 7 p.m.; Sunday matinées start at 3 p.m. There will be a donor reception prior to the July 21 curtain.

We have a terrific cast lined up for this production, for which tickets will go on sale in April. We’ll unveil more details – and the Tosca poster – at the Opera Wilmington 10th Anniversary Celebration March 3.
