One of the world’s most famous operas, ‘Tosca’ is a tale of love and loyalty set against insuperable odds of cruelty and lust, with wonderful arias from the composer of ‘Nessun Dorma’.

As part of its Summer Tour 2022 Bath Opera is bringing a performance to Wincanton Memorial Hall on the evenings of Friday 15th and Saturday 16th July, from 7:30pm, tickets £16.

Following Bath Opera’s triumphant tour of ‘Barner of Seville’ last year, described by the National Operatic and Dramatic Association as ‘a masterpiece of touring opera’, our production this year again features Robert Felstead, Niall Hoskin and Edward Harper, and under the same directors.

This year, however, they are joined by the amazing international soprano Ghiulnara Raileanu in her UK premiere role. Audiences are in for a real treat, and should book early. Visit to hear her singing the role for her national opera.

For more information, and tickets (£16), call 01963 34196.
