The painter Cavaradossi aids Angelotti, who is on the run for political offences. Police chief Scarpia covets the artist’s capricious lover, the singer Tosca. He makes use of her jealousy and her fondness for histrionics to his own ends in order to possess her, while at the same time getting rid of his rival Cavaradossi and his political enemy Angelotti. A diabolical game begins in which Tosca belatedly realises that Scarpia has managed to deceive her. She betrays Angelotti, who kills himself. Scarpia promises that the execution of Angelotti’s accomplice, Cavaradossi, will be staged. When she learns his price – herself – Tosca stabs the police chief. The supposedly mock execution proves to be real, whereupon Tosca leaps to her death.
