Overview

Director Calixto Bieito returns to the Norwegian Opera and Ballet, this time with Puccini's Tosca.

The first sharp chords of Puccini's popular opera Tosca take us into a world of political unrest, torture and merciless power games. At the centre of the action is the Chief of Police, Scarpia – one of the true bad boys of the operatic world. For him, cruelty goes hand in hand with his erotic appetite – particularly for the singer Floria Tosca. While her lover, the painter Mario Cavaradossi, is tortured, Scarpia explains that the price for Cavaradossi’s release from political imprisonment is Tosca herself.

Puccini presents Scarpia’s dark disharmonies in crass contrast to the loving pair’s beautiful arias and duets, such as Cavaradossi’s well-known tower aria and Tosca's "Vissi d’arte".

In his new production, the Opera's first permanent Guest Director Calixto Bieito focuses on the intense and intimate chamber play that is spun around these three characters, in addition to the brutal reality that the opera actually depicts.
