Summary
"Tosca is a story of lust and crime, originally written for Sarah Bernhardt by the French playwright, Victorien Sardou. Puccini's genius lay in his remarkable ability to transform such a tale into an opera of the highest drama and passion. Tosca was central to Puccini's career and revealed a new refinement and fluency in his work. Through Tosca, a drama of idealistic young love, Puccini was bidding farewell to young manhood, with melodic style and rousing passion."--Unedited summary from container
