    Live stream from the Royal Opera House of Puccini’s Tosca.

    Into the romantic world of an idealistic painter, Cavaradossi, and his sensuous lover Tosca comes the malevolence of Baron Scarpia, Chief of Police, with fatal results.

    NT Live: Leopoldstadt

    10/02/2022

    Filmed in front of a live audience at the Wyndham’s Theatre in London, Tom Stoppard’s latest and possibly last play, directed by Patrick Marber.
    Tom Stoppard’s Olivier Award-winning new play Leopoldstadt is a passionate drama of love, family and endurance.
