Three of the most highly-charged characters in opera will be depicted on stage when Opera Project returns to Bristol after a three-year break.

The company had a hugely successful run of Madam Butterfly at the Tobacco Factory Theatre in 2014 and now it has returned with Puccini’s Tosca.

The opera depicts the final hours of Baron Scarpia, the ruthless and corrupt chief of the Roman police, painter Mario Cavaradossi and his lover, celebrated singer Floria Tosca.

This production will be performed in English and will feature a 12-piece orchestra to tell the story of love, jealousy, lust, despair, torture and murder.

Performances of Tosca will take place at the Tobacco Factory Theatre in Raleigh Road at 7.30pm each evening now until October 14.

Tickets, priced £15-42, are available via www.tobaccofactorytheatres.com or by calling 01179 020344.
