Tosca comes to The Anvil

ELLEN Kent and Opera International present Puccini's classic opera Tosca at The Anvil in Basingstoke on March 25 at 7.45pm.

Tosca is a heady mixture of true love and tragedy, with one of the most gripping stories in all opera.

Its tale of a celebrated singer and her artistic lover falling foul of a corrupt police chief is a showcase for the lead soprano role.

Puccini's most popular of operas includes the tender arias Rocondita Armonia, Vissi d'Arte and E Lucevan le Stelle.

With spectacular traditional sets and costumes, this production features a boys' choir in a specially devised cathedral setting in Act One.

It is sung in Italian with English surtitles.

The Opera Company will return later in the season with Nabucco on April 12.

Tickets for Tosca are priced from £14 to £28.

Call The Anvil box office on 01256 844244. Alternatively, use its website or the ticket fax 01256 366900.
