Puccini's Tosca: a beginner's guide
12. A plan
News arrives that Angelotti has killed himself. Everything is ready for Cavaradossi's execution, so Tosca finally agrees to Scarpia's demands. Scarpia arranges for the execution to be faked. But Tosca has another idea - she demands that Scarpia arranges a safe escape for her and her lover, and gets him to sign a document to prove it.
