Josep-Ramon Olivé takes over the role of "Sciarrone" in Puccini’s “Tosca” with the Orquestra Simfònica at the Gran Teatre del Liceu in Barcelona, Spain this month.
Set in Rome during the 19th century, Tosca is about a political thriller centering around Rome’s diva Floria Tosca, her lover Mario Cavaradossi and the corrupt Police chief Baron Scarpia who wants to gain Tosca for himself and uses all horrific tricks to achieve his goal.
Starting with a very successful first performance last Sunday, the performance can be seen from 11 to 28 June. Tickets are still available here!
