Puccini's 5th opera TOSCA

14 x Tosca 1989-04-06, 1998-10-24, 2001-09-08, 2003-03-17, 2006-07-15, 2007-01-13, 2007-06-09, 2007-11-23, 2009-04-25, 2009-06-20, 2010-09-11, 2010-12-19, 2010-12-28, 2010-12-30

I have seen Tosca 14 times in 23 years. What does that mean? For me it means that this is one of the operas I have seen the most and in general it means that Tosca is one of the most popular operas. Tosca is the safe bet but one needs a great soprano as Tosca, a wonderful tenor as Cavaradossi and a menacing baritone/bass as Scarpia.
