Maryland Opera’s sixth season comes to its exciting climax with Tosca, Puccini’s masterpiece of passion and defiance, on Saturday, April 13, 2024 at 7:00 p.m. at the Church of the Redeemer on Charles Street in North Baltimore.  Tickets are $50-$75.

Puccini’s opera will be presented complete, fully staged and costumed in the acoustically and visually exquisite sanctuary at Church of the Redeemer with chorus and orchestra.  A pre-concert lecture will be held in the Church’s parish hall from 6pm-6:30pm to discuss the background of this iconic opera.  All are welcome at the lecture with the purchase of a ticket to the performance.

Joining us is an internationally acclaimed cast including soprano Christine Lyons as Tosca, tenor Dominic Armstrong as Cavaradossi, and baritone Andrew Manea as Scarpia, all led by renowned conductor Steven White.

Stage and musical direction is by Maryland Opera’s Artistic Director James Harp, long known for excellence in operatic performances and musical outreach in the Mid-Atlantic area.

“Our dream has come true!” said Harp. “We are delighted to be able to present a full opera production that is sourced and based on our Maryland artists and artisans, encouraging and nurturing local talent while featuring international singers as well.  The glorious music of Puccini will reach our very hearts as we experience this grand story that reaches the full spectrum of human existence.  Join us for this milestone in our opera community!”

Tickets are $50-$75 and are available on Maryland Opera’s website,, or by calling 484-678-6041.  Seating is limited so advance orders are recommended.  Free parking is available in the Church of the Redeemer parking lot adjacent to the building and across Melrose Avenue.  Student tickets are also available for $25.
