The World's Greatest Music
Explore the romance and tragedy of one of Giacomo Puccini's greatest operas, Tosca. Includes plot synopsis and pictures.
With the document signed and the object of his affection finally his, Scarpia grabs Tosca in an embrace. However, she's not having any of it and fatally stabs him. She then says that she forgives him (which is perhaps not the most apposite time to mention it), lights a candle, places a crucifix on his body and then leaves. As exits go, it's pretty good.
