Production Description

Casting "Tosca." Florida Grand Opera (FGO) is seeking young singers and actors to join the children’s chorus of Giacomo Puccini’s "Tosca," to be performed in Italian. Personnel states: "The passionate and beautiful singer, Floria Tosca, is in love with a handsome young artist, Cavaradossi, but the lustful chief of police, Scarpia, has other plans. He makes a lecherous offer, allowing Tosca to save her lover. At first, she strikes an unholy bargain with the evil Scarpia, but her hatred for him gives her second thoughts. The results are bloody, deadly, and shocking. Come see what Tosca means when she says, “This is Tosca’s kiss.” "Tosca" includes some of the most inspired and memorable music in all of opera. When it debuted in 1900, it was an immediate hit, and it has been an opera fan favorite for 113 years."
