Phil Radoff
Tosca is one of Giacomo Puccini's most popular operas.  Against the background of Rome in the Napoleonic era, Puccini's tragic heroine courageously fights to rescue her lover and resist the sexual advances of a powerful and corrupt chief of police.  The action takes place in several of Rome's recognizable locations and features some of Puccini's best known melodies.  Phil will treat us to an hour-long preview of the opera in advance of the Metropolitan Opera's High Definition production, to be shown in many area theaters.

Phil Radoff is a retired lawyer with a lifelong interest in opera. He currently leads a course on Mozart's Don Giovanni.
