Start the New Year off with a bang – Tosca by the Seattle Opera
If you haven’t been lucky enough to see a production of Tosca, then you might want to make it a New Year’s resolution to see this intense and satisfying opera. Puccini’s score sets the emotional stage for Tosca, the fiery prima donna, as she struggles to set her true love free from the clutches of a wicked man who is bent on having her for himself.

Italian tenor Stefano Secco will sing the role of Mario Cavaradossi, a painter who loves life, liberty, and Floria Tosca. Stefano Secco began his studies of piano and singing under the guidance of M° Alberto Soresina and subsequently received a diploma in percussion with M° Tullio De Piscopo. Secco privately followed Maestri like Franco Corelli, Franca Mattiucci, and attended master classes led by Leyla Gencer and Renata Scotto, among others. He has had an illustrious career, singing major roles, including Cavaradossi, in a wide variety of international productions.
