«Floria Tosca» is a musical drama composed by the famous 19th century Italian composer, filled with expression and passion.
The plot is based on the story of a love triangle: singer «Floria Tosca», her lover - the artist Mario Cavaradossi and the chief of police - Baron Scarpia. However, against the background of the dramatic plot, the historical context of what is happening was not missed, which adds an expressive shade to the whole action - this is the struggle of Italian patriots for the unity and independence of their Motherland against its main enemy - Austria. The emperor Napoleon, who marched with his troops against the Habsburgs, wins a victory over her, and his plans do not include support for independence in Italy and the creation of the Roman Republic. He needs to restore the power of the Vatican. The music tells the audience that all the dreams of Cavaradossi and Angelotti of a bright and serene future will be mercilessly destroyed. A tragic ending is inevitable.
Rapid development of the plot, music that carries passions and emotions. The entire opera was transformed by the composer into a single, indivisible dramatic whole. Behind the love triangle lies a powerful energy, the Italian people longing for freedom and the struggle of the present with the past.
