Tosca is considered by many a masterpiece and a few operas come close to its stature.

Tosca was adapted by Puccini from the famous French five-act drama written by popular French playwright Victorien Sardou. He was born in Paris in 1831 and later settled in a village near Cannes. Some of the other works from Sardou include Monsieur Garat, La Pappillone, Les Ganaches, Le Degel, La Perle Noire, Le Diables noirs and la Famille Benoiton. Giacomo Puccini is a famous Italian composer who was born in Tuscany, Italy in 1858. Puccini’s operas are the most frequently performed works. Puccini’s father Domenico Puccini was also a music composer and had the privilege of learning music from the legendary classical era composer Giovanni Paisiello. While Giacomo Puccini was a young boy, he was enrolled into San Michele seminary. His music education was supervised by his uncle named Fortunato Magi. In 1880 Puccini got his diploma in music education and composition from Pacini School of Music in Lucca.
Giacomo Puccini was given a special grant to continue his musical education at the Milan Conservatory under renowned musicians like Antonio Bazzini, Amilcare Ponchielli and Stefano Monteviti. It was under the supervision of Bazzini and Ponchielli that he wrote his first work titled Capriccio Sinfonica which was an orchestral piece. Puccini’s teachers were impressed and he performed it at a student concert. Puccini then went on to write his first orchestral work which he named Le Villi. This opera was included in a competition that was sponsored by the Sozogno music publishing company. Le Villi caught the attention of a well known Italian musician and editor Giulio Ricordo, who was the head of publishing of G. Ricordo & Co. Ricordo commissioned Puccini to write his second opera titled Edgar. From here onwards Puccini went on to compose some of the greatest operas of the time. These included Madama Butterfly, La Boheme, La rondine and Manon Lescaut.
Tosca is a melodramatic play that tells about the story of Napoleon’s invasion of Italy. The opera was composed in the late 1800’s with the libretto written by Giuseppe Giacosa and Luigi Illica. This work has been appreciated by music critics as it includes thoroughly composed recitatives, arias, and choruses. This three act opera includes characters like Floria Tosca a celebrated soprano, Mario Cavaradossi a painter in tenor, Baron Scarpia a police chief in baritone, Spoletta a police agent in tenor and Sciaronne A.Gendarme in bass. Some of the arias in the opera are “Recondita armonia,” “vissi d’arte,” “O docli mani, ““Va! Tosca,” ” E lucevan le stele, “ “O dolci mani”and “Non la sospiri, la nostra casseta.”
La Tosca is one of those operas that have been continually revived by various ballet and orchestra productions. It is now again being staged at a famous venue in the city and opera enthusiasts should check it out.
