La Tosca and its Children’s Choir


25 Feb La Tosca and its Children’s Choir

The opera Tosca was composed by Giacomo Puccini to the tale of Victorien Sardou’s dramatic play, La Tosca. Often overlooked by contemporary repertory theaters, the play revolves largely around the familiar topoi of the French Revolution, and is in many ways reminiscient of Victor Hugo’s well-known Les Misérables. It is set to the Napoleonic Wars at the turn of the century, and unfolds a tale of love, friendship, and betrayal to the background of transcendent themes such as republicanism and political oppression. Abounding with symbols of political and theological significance, it is too often forgotten in the canon of operatic works common today.


In the beginning of May, 2015, the Florida Opera Theater will be presenting Puccini’s work alongside the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra at the Bobb Car Performing Arts Center. We are proud to announce that Madison, one of our students, has been accepted to be a part of the children’s choir after a recent audition! This is one more example of the many opportunities available to young musicians and performers throughout the Central Florida area — a community that is beginning to blossom in all aspects of the performing arts. We are proud to be a part of this thriving community, and applaud Maddy and all of our students who are bravely taking the initiative to get on stage and bring masterpieces to life!
