Heritage Opera presents Puccini's TOSCA
Sunday 14th September, 7:30pm
Tickets £19.00*/£17.00* (conc)

Rome, June 17th 1800: the unpleasant realities of war and political espionage are about to crash headlong into the charmed lives of opera diva Floria Tosca, and her lover, Mario Cavaradossi, an artist who harbours some very dangerous revolutionary sentiments. Chief of Police, Baron Scarpia, wants answers to some difficult questions, and will stop at nothing to achieve his evil ends. Mario is led to the torture chamber, and Tosca is put in a terrifying situation: she can save her lover, but only by submitting to a ‘fate worse than death’. As Scarpia closes in, she seems to have only one choice...

New for Summer 2014, Heritage Opera presents Puccini’s masterpiece, Tosca. Touring since 2006, this professional chamber opera company has grown in reputation, garnering fabulous reviews in the local, national and music press for dramatically and musically committed productions. Heritage Opera is delighted to be returning to the Floral Pavilion in 2014 with Tosca. Containing some of opera’s most beloved melodies, Tosca will charm and move you, with its eternal themes of power, obsession, love, and death.

What the critics said about previous Heritage Opera productions:

“A brilliant achievement, all told.”

Geoff Brown, The Times

“...sung with aplomb by a cast of highly experienced singers,…There were laugh-out-loud moments,…combined with a stellar cast and spot-on direction, this was a Figaro that I’ll remember for a long time to come.”
Sarah Kirkup, Gramophone Magazine

“…a wonderful evening’s entertainment…..a beautifully balanced, musical and dramatic tour-de-force of first-rate singing”
Michael Nunn, Lancashire Evening Post

Tosca will be sung in English, accompanied by 6-piece instrumental ensemble.

A beautiful girl, Snow White, takes refuge in the forest in the house of seven dwarfs to hide from her stepmother, The Wicked Queen. The Queen is jealous because she wants to be "the fairest in the land," and Snow White's beauty surpasses her own. Can the seven dwarfs save Snow White from the Wicked Queen’s evil plans? Let’s put it this way, red apples don’t get a particularly good reputation in this enchanting tale!

Leading the cast as The Wicked Queen is Coronation Street’s TUPELE DORGU, Preston born Tupele trained in drama and musical theatre at the London Studio Centre. She made her West End debut in Mamma Mia! although she is probably best known for playing Kelly Crabtree (also known as Legs) in Coronation Street for five years. Tupele’s other TV credits include: MI High (CBBC), Natalie Vance in Merseybeat, and Keely James in Waterloo Road. Her other theatre credits include: Teechers (UK Tour) Educating Rita (Lichfield Garrick), and Chicago (No1 Tour).

From Channel 5’s Milkshake!, the hugely talented OLIVIA BIRCHENOUGH will be play a glittering Snow White. Olivia trained at Rose Bruford College of Theatre and Performance, The Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre and with the National Youth Theatre. She will resume touring with the nationwide theatre show Milkshake! Party Party! after Christmas.

Director CHRIS PIZZEY will also plays Muddles. With extensive theatre credits, Chris will be recognisable to television audiences as Mr Stephen in The Basil Brush Show, Trevor in The Legend of Dick and Dom and Sarah Jane’s father in The Sarah Jane Adventures. He has been a long-time member of the UK Productions panto company and this will be his second time directing Snow White.

Panto dame extraordinaire, STEPHEN DAVID, plays the hilarious Nursie, whilst a cast of seven dwarfs will create more madness and mayhem as they try to keep Snow White safe from the evil clutches of The Wicked Queen.

Musical Director STEVE ALLAN JONES and Choreographer and Assistant Director ANDREW MARGERISON return for the 5th year running for what has become one of the most successful pantos in the Liverpool City Region.

With a mix of well known songs, cheeky comedy, great casts, stunning sets, beautiful costumes, outstanding quality and value for money, it’s become an unmissable festive treat for families across the region.
