Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra’s Open Rehearsal of Tosca

Location: Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts, Walt Disney Theater
445 S. Magnolia Ave. Orlando

A fiery prima donna is forced to play a role she never imagined when she becomes trapped between her allegiance to her rebel lover and the scheming of a treacherous police chief, who will stop at nothing in his unquenchable lust for her. The explosive triangle comes to a hair-raising conclusion in one of opera's bloodiest, most intense dramas.

An opera beloved by many, Puccini's score drips with lush, heart-tugging passages, cannon fire, church bells and opera's most beloved arias, including "E lucevan le stelle," "Recondita armonia," and "Vissi d'arte."

This event is an open blocking rehearsal and will be sung in Italian. There will not be supertitles.
