Productions for 2019
Puccini’s Tosca is as much a thriller as a tragedy. Regents Opera will present the story in a ‘film noir’ style, making the most of the rich mix of politics, religion, torture, blackmail, attempted rape, murder, execution and suicide. Who could want more for an evening’s entertainment?
Set in the early 20C Puccini’s Madama Butterfly is the heart wrenching and exotic tale where Pinkerton, an American naval officer, arranges through a marriage broker to take a bride(Butterfly) while stationed in Japan.
The themes of honour, duty and shame are brought together in a rich score which combines Eastern and Western melodies to portray the jarring collision of the two cultures. Will it be life with dishonour or death with dignity.
