Join Tête à Tête for a nightmare evening as we massacre another classic. Following our disastrous Bohème in 2017, Burke creates another lousy orchestration to perform with totally inept Bill Bankes-Jones. A shambolic production where stellar singers Gweneth-Anne Rand (Tosca), Ronald Samm (Cavaradossi) and Keel Watson (Scarpia) do their best to survive the mayhem. Will Tosca leap to her death off the Castel Sant’Angelo? Will magnificent singing be ruined by hideously ear-splitting recorder playing? There is only one way to find out…
