3. Angelotti reveals himself
Angelotti then reveals himself after being hidden. It turns out that Cavaradossi is an old friend (convenient, that) and Angelotti begins telling him about his travails - he is being pursued by the chief of police, Baron Scarpia, so Cavaradossi agrees to help him out that night. Before they can do anything, we hear Tosca's voice soaring out to Cavaradossi. She enters, and Angelotti hides again.
