The Embassy of Italy, the Italian Cultural Institute and the Washington National Opera are pleased to present a special preview of Giacomo Puccini’s Tosca debuting on May 11th at the J. F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.

Director Ethan McSweeny and Conductor Speranza Scappucci will take you inside the composer's mind and into the history and social context of the opera, explaining the behind the scenes of this revival of Puccini’s iconic work. With gripping political corruption, soaring music, and the legendary devastating finale, Tosca is a sumptuous tale of ill-fated love that amazes and captivates new and longtime opera lovers alike.

The program will also feature musical performances from the opera.
