The famed Roman opera singer Floria Tosca is in a loving relationship with the painter Mario Cavaradossi. But when Cavaradossi helps out a political refugee, however, things take a turn for the worse as the sadistic police chief Scarpia takes Cavaradossi prisoner in the hope of uncovering the fugitive's whereabouts... For his staging of Tosca, Barrie Kosky drew inspiration from film and in particular by the genre of film noir.
