One of the most epic love-triangle operas ever staged, Tosca, comes to Peabody Auditorium (600 Auditorium Blvd. in Daytona Beach) at 7 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 12, presented by the Daytona Beach Symphony Society.
Giacomo Puccini’s Tosca is a story about an epic love triangle among opera singer Floria Tosca, artist Mario Cavaradossi and the power-hungry chief of police Baron Scarpia.
Thrilling audiences for more than a century, the intensity of Puccini’s score and this tale of great passion, courage and devastating jealousy make this an unforgettable opera of frightening power.
The opera includes live music by a 40-piece all-American orchestra, several soloists who made their much-celebrated debut last season, and English supertitles.
There is a free Pre-Performance Talk, given by Dr. Earnest Murphy Jr., at 6 p.m. in the auditorium.
The 67th season will continue in 2019 with:
Shanghai Opera Symphony Orchestra at 3 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 27;
Cirque Musica Crescendo with the Jacksonville Symphony at 3 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 3;
Academy of St. Martin in the Fields at 7 p.m. Friday, Feb. 22;
