Tosca - June 9th (8 PM), 10th (2 and 8 PM), and 11th (2 PM), 2023
Pre-concert talks with Laura Stanfield Prichard before all performances - at 7:15 and 1:15.
Love, passion, tenderness, jealousy, political scheming, lechery, treachery, revenge - a full palate of emotions for Giacomo Puccini to paint with his uniquely expressive music and memorable melodies in Tosca, consistently among the ten most-often-performed operas worldwide. Continuing Opera51's presentations of Puccini's immensely popular dramatic works, this coming June we will stage four performances of this masterpiece. Performed in costume with full orchestra on 51 Walden's drama stage, Tosca will be sung in Italian with projected English titles. Click here for more details about Tosca.

Audience Praise for Opera51 Productions
Comments received from Turandot attendees match the palpable audience enthusiasm felt in the hall:
"Congrats on a splendid, compelling production of Turandot! The Princess and Calaf were first rate, the 3 Ps delightful, and the rest of the cast and orchestra fully up to the task. The semi-staging and use of the space and its features were totally convincing. Two months ago we went to New York to see the Metís luscious Zeffirelli production before it is retired. In all sincerity, we enjoyed Opera51ís production just as much and in some respects even more."
"My wife and I went to Friday nightís performance. We had no expectations, but it was GREAT! We were really impressed with the quality of the singing and the orchestra. We are very used to the Metís Zeffirrelli production, but the intimacy of Opera51 allowed us to focus more on the music and not the grandiosity."
