Giacomo Puccini: Tosca (Libretto)

Books | Opera

Publisher: G. Schirmer
Artist: Giacomo Puccini
Format: Sheet Music | Libretto
In 'Tosca', Puccini explored the dark side of human emotion, a marked change from the late-Romantic sentimentality of 'La Boheme'. Also in contrast to 'La Bohème' where the villain was fate and so the stage action was minimal, both heros and villains are humans who struggle on stage, and the clashes are always between single individuals. It is a story of cheating and doubt - nothing seems honest and direct, even love is troubled by jealousy.

This is the Schirmer Ediiton of the Libretto, in the original Italian with an English translation by John Gutman.
