Tosca

Sometimes rejection feels like a knife in the heart, and no one knows that better than Puccini’s treacherous villain Scarpia when he sets his machinations on the beautiful singer Tosca and her lover Cavaradossi. A masterwork of soaring arias and exquisite duets, Tosca shines as one of the great jewels of the operatic form. Iconic, everlasting, Puccini’s riveting melodrama of escape, pursuit, torture and murder culminates in Tosca’s gripping battle to try to save everything she believes in — art, love and life itself.

Tosca will be sung in Italian with English translations projected above the stage. Maestro Lipton will lead an international cast along with the Opera Tampa Orchestra and Chorus.

Dr. Phillips Center Presents Pilobolus: Shadowland

Public On-Sale: 12 p.m., Friday, June 10, 2016
Dr. Phillips Center Members get Pre-Sale Access.

Show date: Saturday, March 18, 2017
Show times: 8 p.m.
Tickets start at $29.00
Walt Disney Theater

Created by famed dance company Pilobolus, Shadowland is a first-of-its-kind performance combining legendary modern dance with high-energy, fast-paced multimedia, merging front-of-screen choreography with projected images and moving screens of different sizes and shapes.

Shadowland tells the story of a teenage girl, longing for her independence, with nowhere for her thoughts to go but to her dreams. She sleeps, only to wake to something incredible lurking behind her bedroom wall – her shadow. Walls spin, darkness swallows the girl, and she’s off on a journey into Shadowland.

Shadowland was conceived in collaboration with Steven Banks, lead writer for the playfully surreal animated series SpongeBob SquarePants, and is propelled by a rhythmic original score by the popular American musician, producer and film composer David Poe. And, it is a signature Pilobolus presentation with the fluid logic of a dream, the grace of an acrobatic dance, the humor of a child, and the heart of a love story; it celebrates the strange and wonderful power of the dark to illuminate us in unexpected and utterly thrilling ways.
