Distinguished musicologists, historians, theater professionals, and luminaries of the operatic stage reflect on European history in 1800, 1900 and 2000 through the prism of Puccini's Tosca. Giacomo Puccini's Tosca, which premiered in Rome in 1900, is one of the most popular operas in the repertory. Based on Victorien Sardou's play La Tosca, the enduring tale of love, lust, jealousy, and politics takes place in the specific setting and time of the Eternal City in June 1800, and draws on the historical events following the fall of the Roman republic. This extraordinary collection provides multidimensional images of each period from a wide range of perspectives. Includes an Index.

(Key Words: Tosca, Deborah Burton, Susan Vandiver Nicassio, Agostino Ziino, Opera, Giacomo Puccini, Cultural Studies, Rome, Roma, Music, Victorien Sardou, Giovanni Paisiello).
