Based on Puccini's opera, Floria Tosca reinterprets for today's times the relationship between Scarpia, chief of police, and Tosca, singer and lover of Cavaradossi, the radical, whom Scarpia plans to arrest and torture. In elegant, precise writing, Paola Capriolo takes us to a world where love and hatred, piety and devilry, abstinence and desire come together.
