The Dietrich Theater in the historic town center of Tunkhannock will, for the first time, show the Royal Opera on its big screen.
“Tosca” airs at 2 p.m. on Sundays, February 6 and 13.
From the demonic chords with which the opera begins to the violent turmoil of its shock ending, the tension never stops for a moment.
A romance, tragedy and thriller, “Tosca”, is set in Rome in 1800 during political chaos. Into the romantic world of an idealistic painter Cavaradossi and his sensual lover Tosca comes the malevolence of Baron Scarpia, chief of police, with fatal results.
The exceptional cast of Elena Stikina, Bryan Hymeland and Alexey Markov bring to life one of the most beloved operas in the Royal Opera’s repertoire: Puccini’s Tosca. Jonathan Kent’s tense and intense production with Paul Brown’s storied creations beautifully evokes the dangerous atmosphere of Rome in 1800, where love and evil come – thrillingly – face to face.
You won’t want to miss this hauntingly beautiful opera. General admission to the show is $14, senior/member tickets are $12, and student/kid tickets are $10.
Tickets are available at DietrichTheater.com, at the box office or by calling 570-836-1022 x3 for reservations. Le Dietrich hopes to bring more royal opera and ballet to the big screen in 2022.
