Gesa Power House Theatre presents a Live Cinema screening of The Royal Opera’s current production of Tosca, on Wednesday, February 9 at 6:00 p.m.
Into the romantic world of an idealistic painter Cavaradossi and his sensuous lover Tosca comes the malevolence of Baron Scarpia, Chief of Police, with fatal results. Elena Stikina, Bryan Hymel and Alexey Markov bring to life one of the best loved operas in The Royal Opera repertory: Puccini’s Tosca. From the demonic chords with which it famously begins to the violent twist of the opera’s shock ending, the tension never lets up for a moment. Love and evil come – thrillingly – face to face in Jonathan Kent’s intense production.
Filmed during a live event, the Live Cinema Series broadcasts offer audiences an equivalent to the best seat in the house, with incredibly detailed close-ups of the performers. The Live Cinema Series is sponsored in part by Shakespeare Walla Walla.
This screening has an approximate runtime of 3 hours, 15 minutes, including an on-screen introduction and two intermissions. The opera is performed in Italian with English subtitles. Beer, wine, popcorn, and snacks will be available for purchase, and may be taken into the theater.
