State Opera SA > Tosca > TVC

November 2016 > For four nights in November 2016 State Opera SA presented Tosca by Puccini. Puccini an Italian opera composer who has been called "the greatest composer of Italian opera after Verdi".

The return of this incredible opera to Adelaide has been long-awaited, & this production did not disappoint. Soprano Kate Ladner returned to the Festival Theatre stage as the actress Floria Tosca – a role she was born to play. Her lover, the painter Mario Cavaradossi, was sung by the golden voiced tenor Rosario La Spina & as his arch nemesis Baron Scarpia, baritone Mario Bellanova once again brings his powerful presence to bear.

Adelaide based Production Company RedBikini was commissioned to produce an engaging TVC on a budget to promote Tosca. We decided to base the visuals around "The Painter", therefore local Artist Jack Court painted Tosca advertising material on to glass.
