Benoit Jacquot's acclaimed 2002 film of Puccini's opera stars Angela Gheorghiu in the title role with Roberto Alagna, Ruggero Raimondi and the Chorus and Orchestra of the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden under Antonio Pappano.

Tosca: it is opera, it is Italy.
It is desire, passion and murder.
A woman as a flame,
And two men who stirred her up,
An angel and a devil.
Three voices, three bodies.
It is sung - and it is filmed.
                      Benoit Jacquot
