Tosca at The Royal Opera House

A group of 6 Year 10 students visited the Royal Opera House to see a production of Tosca, written by Puccini on Friday 8th January, which was organised as part of the Harris Experience programme.

Tosca is set in Rome at the beginning of the 19th century; Tosca’s settings are all actual places in Rome which can still be seen today. The historical events surrounding Tosca are complex and dramatic, the music is fabulous.  Tosca is a story of two non-political artists and one violent official caught up in the momentous clash of ideals, armies and political systems. The love story tells of the tragic relationship of Floria Tosca an opera singer and Mario Cavaradossi, a painter.

The performance that we attended was a special production for schools.  The story was explained to students before the act commenced, we were shown how a set was changed and the opera was sung in Italian with English sub-titles displayed above the stage which made it easy for pupils to follow.

Students voiced that they really enjoyed the production of Tosca, that the Royal Opera House was an incredible building and that the production had been very easy to follow.

 

Thank you to the Harris Experience programme for a really educational trip.
