Giacomo Puccini: Tosca
Odeon of Herodes Atticus |

Tosca: An opera diva, a woman who is madly in love and pathologically jealous of her lover. Scarpia: a sinister personality, a man of absolute power who takes pleasure from seeing his victims in pain. Mario Cavaradossi, who is a pure patriot and Tosca’s lover, stands between these two and is led to death; not on account of his ideas but because he enjoys the love of Tosca, the object of Scarpia’s desire. Scarpia’s scheme is brilliantly set up; nobody escapes his traps. This is a thriller full of wild passions that are accentuated by Giacomo Puccini’s overwhelming music. Justifiably it is one of the most famous operas. This scored a great success for the Greek National Opera when it was first presented in the summer of 2012 at the Odeon of Herodes Atticus. The GNO Orchestra will be conducted by Lukas Karytinos.
