CCR Walks: The Roman Settings of "Tosca" - April 16, 2016

“Passion, Murder, Betrayal, Death!”  Puccini placed his 1900 opera “TOSCA” a century earlier, in the Napoleonic Rome of 1800,  and he set its acts in three famous structures of the city:  the church of Sant’Andrea della Valle, the Palazzo Farnese and the Castel Sant’Angelo.

Join us as we explore these backdrops for the opera and discover their importance in this classic work as well as their place, and that of their surroundings, in Rome’s long history. Starting at Sant'Andrea della Valle we take this chance to look at the actual locations and their role in an unforgettable plot.
