'Tosca bound in Blues, Soul and R&B' in Pentridge Prison

Emotionworks Cut Opera is excited to present Puccini’s ‘Tosca bound in Blues, Soul and R&B’ to be performed at Melbourne’s iconic and infamous Pentridge Prison from April 22nd to May 7th, to coincide with the 20th anniversary of its closure.

This fast moving 90 minute adaptation of Tosca is updated and fused with the best classic Blues, Soul and R&B songs reflecting this dark and menacing tale about love, lust, brutality and corruption. And where else but Pentridge?

Tosca - An opera diva admired and pursued by the evil and corrupt head of police – Scarpia. Her lover Cavaradossi is imprisoned for hiding Angelotti an escaped prisoner. The story unfolds tragically…..

The imposing Pentridge site brings this story to life by performing in a real life prison setting while the grunt of the Blues, Soul and R&B reinforces and intensifies the emotional drive of the story. Devised and directed by award winning Opera Australia director Julie Edwardson, who continues to break new ground with her company Emotionworks Cut Opera - bringing opera to new audiences - fusing music genres and cultures.

Featuring some of Melbourne’s best operatic and contemporary voices, the cast includes Jason Wasley/Te Ua Houkamau (Cavaradossi), Michael Lampard/Peter Hanway (Scarpia), Justine Anderson/Katrina Waters (Tosca) and blues performer Richard Woods (Angelotti) accompanied by the Cut Opera House Combo, the Sassy Soul Sirens and the ghosts of Pentridge.

There is an optional guided tour of the site and the heritage prison cells. For the not so faint hearted!
