BEIJING, Aug. 30 (Xinhua) -- The New York-based Metropolitan Opera's "Tosca" will be shown at the Concert Hall of the National Center for the Performing Arts in Beijing on Sept. 11.

"Tosca" is an opera in three acts by Giacomo Puccini to an Italian libretto by Luigi Illica and Giuseppe Giacosa.

It tells the story of opera singer Florio Tosca, painter Mario Cavaradossi and a corrupt police chief, Baron Scarpia. The drama involves political prisoners, deceit, murder, and Tosca's fiery defiance and rebellion, protecting the freedom and autonomy she holds dear in the face of Scarpia's lust for her.

The show is part of the ongoing 2019 NCPA International Opera Film Exhibition which will put 14 Chinese and foreign films on approximately 400 screens in 10 cities. Enditem
