DESCRIPTION:

A story of lust, love betrayal and blackmail – Rome 1800.

Rome in 1800 is in political chaos. Cesare Angelotti, a former consul of the Roman Republic, has escaped imprisonment, and seeks refuge in the church of Sant’Andrea della Valle. The painter and republican sympathizer Mario Cavaradossi promises to hide him at his country villa. Baron Scarpia, Rome’s tyrannical Chief of Police, suspects that Cavaradossi has helped Angelotti to escape. He persuades the painter’s opera singer lover Floria Tosca, that Cavaradossi has betrayed her. She leaves to confront Cavaradossi at his villa and Scarpia orders his men to follow her, in the hope they’ll find Angelotti.

Scarpia arrests Cavaradossi, and tortures him until Tosca reveals Angelotti’s hiding place. Scarpia then condemns Cavaradossi to death before telling Tosca that he will save Cavaradossi – but only if Tosca spends the night with him. Will Tosca yield to the man she hates to save the man she loves?
