Sunday, January 11, 2015 - 2:00pm to 3:30pm

Learn about the Lyric Opera's production of "Tosca" by Giacomo Puccini from an experienced Lyric Opera lecturer.

A fiery diva, the rebel artist who claims her heart, and the sadistic police chief before whom all Rome trembles — for more than a hundred years, audiences have watched and listened spellbound as the cat-and-mouse game between Tosca and Scarpia plays to its deadly conclusion. Will she submit to his lust to save her lover from the firing squad?
