San Diego Opera Spotlight: Puccini's Tosca

3/29/2002; 29 minutes

A backstage glimpse into San Diego Opera's production of Puccini's classic. This "shabby little shocker"- as Tosca was dubbed by a very short-sighted critic- has become one of the repertoire's most popular operas. Puccini's uncanny sense of theatre and natural gift for melody are a killer combination that continues to draw audiences more than 100 years after its premiere. (#6136)
