A wide selection of Tosca melted with other Great Hits of the Opera. The most beautiful and moving pages taken from Puccini's masterpiece and from the operas of other great composers like Verdi, Rossini, Donizetti, who made the history of music. A show Rome Opera Concerts style in which the audience surrounds the stage! After the concert a free Aperitivo with the artists!
Based on the experience of Opera Greatest Hits and Romantic Piano, our top rated bestseller that needs no advertising, we have arranged to put inside the concert, after a few opera arias and duets, and before the grand finale dedicated to the most beautiful and famous Neapolitan songs, a wide Tosca selection of more than half an hour, with costumes and scenes "in the round", as you see in the pictures, with the seats arranged all around the artists.
A few meters from Castel Sant'Angelo, come to relive the story of Floria Tosca and her lover Mario Cavaradossi. You will listen to “E lucevan le stelle” and and "Vissi d’arte" having the performers at a feet distance!
Tosca is the Roman lyric opera par excellence. The story of Tosca takes place in Rome, at the time of the fall of the first Roman Republic on a precise date: Saturday, 14 June 1800, the day of the Battle of Marengo, in which Napoleon's army triumphed on the Austrians.
The first act is set in the church of Sant'Andrea della Valle, the second in Palazzo Farnese and the third in Castel Sant'Angelo: the latter located just a few dozen meters from the warm and intimate hall of Rome Opera Concerts. The hall is in fact located at Piazza di Ponte Sant'Angelo, just meters away from the Castel Sant'Angelo and the legendary St. Peter's Basilica.
Take part to an absolutely unique experience: the stage is located in the middle of the rows of seats and the audience feel like being part of the action. Like watching a 3D movie you will see the singers surround you while singing and acting: small venue, limited audiences, the audience close to the artists and top level performances.
You will be guided in your experience on Tosca and on the other musical pieces performed with a summary of the history, explanations and anecdotes in English.
Immediately after the impressive show, you will have the opportunity to meet the artists drinking Prosecco in the pleasant setting of a free Aperitivo, a small reception to round off your evening in a quintessentially Italian way. The free Aperitivo after the concert is a characteristic of Rome Opera Concerts to increase the sense of a "private event" through the opportunity to meet the artists and to know what they are trying to do with their performances. The Rome Opera Concerts free Aperitivo is very simple: some "mini pizzas" with tomato sauce and some good sparkling wine (Spumante or Prosecco). The secret ingredient is friendship: to put sincere enthusiasm in making music and meeting the audience.
The show Tosca - highlights & other Opera Hits suits everybody:
Interessante trasposizione del capolavoro pucciniano, eseguito davanti alla possente mole di Castel Sant'Angelo, dove Puccini aveva immaginato il finale della sua opera. Ottimo spettacolo per chi volesse accostarsi per la prima volta al mondo della Lirica, ma anche per appassionati melomani. Le voci sicure dei cantanti garantiscono la buona riuscita della messa in scena.
Excellent performance, I really loved the main characters, the place where the Opera was performed
and the intensity of the whole experience.
Looking forward for the next one!!!
Originale présentation du chef d'oeuvre de Puccini, juste en face du Chateau Saint Ange,
dans une église méthodiste, les personnages vivaient littéralement entre nous, les spectateurs.
Une sensation jamais prouvée et un contact directe avec l'action théatrale. Mise en scène
essentielle et très fidèle à la partition, enfin!
Chanteurs impeccables, surtout le ténor Alessandro Fantini qui a chantédivinement bien le grand air du troisième acte, e lucevan le stelle. Et les étoiles réellement reluisaient cette nuit, grace à la professionalité des artistes.
Rome, October 14, 2019, great emotions in Piazza di Ponte Sant'Angelo, with the staging of the "TOSCA"
one of the most popular works of the melodramatic repertoire.
Minimal and essential but extremely original set up: a circular arrangement of seats with respect to the stage where spectators are an integral part of the scene .... magnificent!
The Tenor, Alessandro Fantini, in the role of Cavaradossi, fully convinced the audience by thrilling him with his splendid treble! ... ..
Simply ... great professional!
Un'idea ambiziosa e apparentemente irrealizzabile: rappresentare Tosca in una chiesa metodista con una scenografia ridotta all'osso, un pianoforte e soltanto cinque personaggi... Invece il miracolo è avvenuto! La capacità ed il talento dei cantanti, del pianista e degli organizzatori hanno realizzato uno spettacolo, a mio avviso, superbo. Bravissimi tutti. Alla fine dello spettacolo,uscendo dalla chiesa, Roma ci regala la meravigliosa vista notturna di Castel Sant'Angelo che, dopo il terzo atto di Tosca, diventa sicuramente indimenticabile. Che cosa si può chiedere di più?
Una esperienza fantastica...è come stare sul palco del teatro insieme a loro... un pianista eccezionale, la soprano veramente eccezionale, senza nulla togliere agli altri cantanti...grazie
Ya había tenido ocasión de oír un concierto de Rome Concerts (ahora Rome Opera Concerts, ed), Opera Greatest Hits in Rome, y el nivel fue excepcional, pero veo que también Tosca sigue manteniendo la calidad. Excelentes cantantes situados a dos o tres metros del público. Una sensación única. Es como participar en directo a la actuación. Hay que verlo absolutamente.
Während unsere Reise in Rom wollten wir unbedingt ein Oper anschauen gehen. Wir haben uns für diese entschieden. Eine der besten Erlebnisse in Rom! Die Tosca in der Nähe der Orten der Oper (erster Akt in einer Kirche, der zweite am Palazzo Farnese, der dritte an der Engelsburg). Die Einleitungen die am Anfang jedes Aktes stattfinden sind sehr wertvoll. Es ist wunderschön so nahe bei den Sängern zu sein! Hervorragend, empfohlen!
We decided to take part in this event as I am in love with Tosca and listening to it in Rome could not provide a better setting !! The artists are very professional and provide very useful and interesting insights.... And the opera is brillantly put in the scene ...Definitely a very original night out in the Eternal City!
Une belle représentation de Tosca près de Castel S. Angelo.
Les chanteurs sont si proches de vous que vous pouvez les toucher!
Il semble qu'ils chantent juste pour vous. Les voix sont sublimes
Opéra à ne pas rater.
I’ll never forget... I’ve seen Tosca in a space in front of Castel Sant’Angelo. A masterpiece seated near the artists. The tenor Alessandro Fantini, has an unbelievable wonderful voice, the soprano, Monica Cucca has interpreted in a marvellous way.
I accidentally discovered this Tosca, which left me really satisfied, even though I didn't have high expectations. The opera, my favorite, is represented almost entirely, in an essential but suggestive way, in a small church opposite Castel Sant'Angelo. The acoustics are good and the main interpreters are exceptional. The interpretation of "E lucevan le stelle" by the tenor was particularly moving.
The main performers have all entered the character perfectly, creating an engaging and full of energy atmosphere. Excellent musical level, voices with a beautiful Puccini tone and a noteworthy singing technique. A special mention must be made for the splendid soprano, who knew how to classify all the fragility and, at the same time, Tosca's courage. Not to be missed.
Last night, As I stepped into the Methodist Church in Piazza di Ponte Sant'Angelo for this performance of Tosca, I honestly had no too big expectations. At the end I can say I was wrong, since the show was really amazing. In one hour and a half you can enjoy an important selection of the most famous and representative scenes and arias from the Opera without the feeling to have missed something. Despite the poor scenography and the limited space, the opera has been well staged and very well sung. I enjoyed above all the lady interpreting the title role for his voice and his acting. Last but not list, after the closing of the opera, I mean after Tosca trowed yourself out of Castel Sant'Angelo, it was very suggestive coming out from the church and finding yourself in front of the real Castel Sant'Angelo. Priceless, definitely a must if you are in Rome!
Due to the situation caused by Covid-19 we have not yet been able to define our 2021-2022 musical season. We look forward to doing this as soon as possible.
