Puccini's Tosca: a beginner's guide
The curtain rises on Act II, and Scarpia's posh apartment. He's requested that Tosca join him, and we find out that he's managed to capture Cavaradossi but not Angelotti. As Cavaradossi is questioned, he hears the voice of Tosca in the next room. Unsurprisingly, he claims to know nothing about Angelotti, so he is taken into another room to be tortured - but Tosca catches sight of him before it happens and he tells her to keep schtum about Angelotti.
