Giacomo Puccini


A semi-staged outdoor performance at Crystal Palace Bowl

27 Aug–29 Aug 2021

Tosca is a roller coaster story of love, lust, murder and political intrigue. With its dramatic story line and Puccini’s richly romantic score, it is one of the world’s best loved operas.

Richard Farnes conducts the award-winning ENO Orchestra and Chorus, and a cast featuring Natalya Romaniw as Tosca, David Junghoon Kim as Cavaradossi, and Roland Wood as Scarpia.

Tosca is part of the South Facing Festival, a brand new outdoor concert series coming to Crystal Palace Park this summer. Drawing on the rich musical heritage of an iconic South London venue, it features headline gigs from Dizzee Rascal & The Outlook Orchestra, Supergrass, The Streets, Max Richter, and ENO, with more to be announced.

Large screens will also relay the performance and microphones will be used for high quality sound. The large grass area in front of the stage will form the open-air picnic-style seating area with plenty of space for you to make yourself comfortable on the ground. Join us for a magical evening of live opera as the sun goes down in the beautiful surrounds of Crystal Palace Park.
