"It is one in a new series of Opera Explained CDs, and I confess that I became engrossed in what I heard. For under a fiver, it is a great way to get to know an opera."

Franklin Bishop
AD LIB Magazine, May 2002

"It really is impossible not to recommend this wonderfully innovative series from Naxos strongly both to those familiar with opera and those new to the art form. These listener friendly, non-technical but informed introductions to famous operas make a jargon free, refreshing and enticing approach that is bound to generate more opera going devotees. With the plot clearly explained and the main arias illustrated with musical extracts, Puccini's Tosca comes to dramatic life. Even if you think you don't like opera, this series is worth trying - who knows you could soon be getting out the glad rags and taking in the splendour and glory of the latest operatic production in town."
