ETO Tosca for Blackpool

David Upton

Blackpool Grand Theatre welcomes back English Touring Opera for a new production of Giacomo Puccini’s 1900 opera Tosca on June 10.

A story of love and betrayal in the time of tyrannical despots, the oppression of women and the choices of Tosca continue to be ever-prescient around the world.

ETO’s tour will be double cast. Tosca will be played by Laura Mitchell (Così fan tutte, ETO) and Paula Sides. Cavaradossi will be played by Alexander James Edwards and Samuel Sakker. Scarpia will be played by Craig Smith (Simon Boccanegra, ETO) and ETO favourite Andrew Slater. It’s sung in Italian with English surtitles.
