Giacomo Puccini’s ultimate thriller will change the hearts and minds of even the most resistant opera cynics. Even if you’re convinced you won’t like opera, try Tosca on for size. Powerful music, a stellar cast, spectacular staging, and the world-class baton of Maestro Anthony Barrese bring this suspense-packed classic to life – right here in our own back yard (The National Hispanic Cultural Center) and for a very little price (tickets start at only $15).

Sunday – October 28 – 2 pm; Wednesday – October 31 – 7:30 pm; Friday – November 2 – 7:30 pm; Sunday – November 4 – 2 pm. Order your tickets by phone: Opera Southwest Box Office / 505-243-0591 NHCC Box Office / 505-724-4771 Or online: www.OperaSouthwest.org

Founded in 1972, Opera Southwest continues to produce high-quality, professional and enjoyable operatic performances in an intimate setting where there’s not a bad seat in the house. OSW prides itself on being accessible and affordable for everyone, with no lofty attitudes and no big price tags. To see what we mean by that, just buy a $15 opera ticket and duck in to one of the free, informal pre-opera overviews just before each performance. There you’ll join opera buffs and novices alike to learn about the upcoming performance in a fun, easy-to-understand “lecture” usually by the Maestro himself. OSW has staged numerous world premieres and has taken on some of the most challenging and ambitious works in the repertoire, always with resounding success. Over the years, this small city opera company has earned a widespread big-league reputation. We are truly fortunate to have such a quality-of-life force in our community. Opera Southwest never disappoints.
