TOSCA. A SYNOPSIS After the fall of Roman Republic the former consul of Rome Cesare Angelotti, who was imprisoned in the castle of Sant’Angelo, managed to escape. He comes to the church of Sant’Andrea della Valle, taking refuge in the chapel of his sister, Marchioness Attavanti. He meets his friend, Mario Cavaradossi, an artist, who is working on a painting of Saint Magdalene in the church. Marchioness Attavanti doesn’t know that Cavaradossi has been using her as a model. Cavaradossi is ready to help his friend; but just when the artist offers him his breakfast their conversation is interrupted by the arrival of Cavaradossi’s mistress, a famous singer Floria Tosca. Mario’s unusual behavior and uneasiness arouses her jealousy. Mario reassures her. When Tosca leaves the church, Cavaradossi suggests to Angelotti that he could hide the former prisoner on his villa. A cannon shot announces that Angelotti’s escape is discovered. Cavaradossi accompanies his friend to his house. In search for Angelotti, baron Scarpia, the chief of the secret police, comes to the church. The absence of the artist, the open gate of the Attavanti chapel, the empty food basket that was found in the chapel - all these signs persuade Scarpia of Cavara-dossi’s complicity. Scarpia discovers the amazing li-keliness between Angelotti’s sister and St. Magdalene, while his men find marchioness’s fan. Scarpia, who is secretly in love with Tosca, immediately realizes that he can get his rival out of the way - he is going to arrest Cavaradossi as Angelotti’s accomplice. When Tosca returns, Scarpia shows her the fan and arouses her jealousy and suspicions again. Tosca leaves in tears, furious at the thought that Cavaradossi has betrayed her; she is followed by two of Scarpia's agents. Seated in his room in Farneze palace, Scarpia is waiting for his agents and for Tosca. In Cavaradossi’s villa, his men could not find Angelotti. But the artist was arrested and brought to Scarpia. Cavaradossi refuses to reveal Angelotti’s hiding place, and Scarpia sends him to the torture room. When Tosca comes, she is forced to hear her lover’s cries of ag-ony; tormented by his groans, she finally confesses that Angelotti is hidden in the secret cave in the well in Cavaradossi's garden. Sciarone brings the news of Napoleon’s victory at Marengo. Cavaradossi, who has regained consciousness after tortures, is jubilant. Scarpia sends him to prison - the artist should be prosecuted by the next morning. When Cavaradossi is taken away, Scarpia tells Tosca that he can set him free for the price of Tosca’s love. Finally Toska agrees. But Scarpia can’t repeal Cavaradossi’s death sentence now, so he gives orders for the mock execution: the guns would be loaded with blank cartridges. While Scarpia writes a letter that would allow Tosca and Cavaradossi leave Rome, she notices a knife on the table and conceals it behind her back. And when Scarpia approaches her in triumph, she stabs him. Early in the morning, Cavaradossi is waiting for execution in the Castle of Sant’Angelo. The bells are ringing, and a shepherds’ song can be heard in a distance. An hour before his death, Cavaradossi writes a farewell letter to Tosca. Suddenly she herself appears with a safe-conduct and tells him the news. The lovers anticipate their future happiness. But first, there must be the execution... Tosca teaches Cavaradossi how to simulate his death. The soldiers come and prepare for the execution. The guns fire, Mario falls down and lies motionless, just as Tosca has advised him... After the soldiers have left, she calls her lover, then rushes to him and realizes that Scarpia has deceived her: Cavaradossi is dead. Suddenly she hears that Scarpia’s death has been discovered. Soldiers are coming to arrest her. Tosca runs to the parapet and throws herself down from the tower of the castle.

"Chinese Opera" is one of the most fascinating works of the eighties, written by the Hungarian composer and conductor Peter Eötvös. The double concert "Shadows" continues to work with the composer's idea of "shadow plays": sounds move as objects in space, throwing different shadows in other, softly echoing sound colours.

The Macbeth story as played out in a troupe of baboons in Botswana? This fanciful idea inspired the writer Alexander McCall Smith and the composer Tom Cunningham to come up with their chamber opera, The Okavango Macbeth. Set in the Okavango Delta in northern Botswana, the opera deals with the efforts of an ambitious female baboon, Lady Macbeth, to encourage her husband, Macbeth, to murder the dominant baboon, Duncan. The response to the opera’s premiere in the No 1 Ladies’ Opera House, led many to conclude that in this extraordinary and unusual tale a new operatic gem has emerged.
