Puccini's powerful opera is the passionate tale of celebrated diva Floria Tosca. When her lover becomes embroiled in political troubles and is pursued by the police chief, Tosca prepares to do whatever it takes to save her beloved. This tragic romance ranks among the most popular operas ever and includes one of the most beautiful arias in the operatic repertoire, "E lucevan le stelle," sung by Tosca's doomed lover as he awaits execution. For this performance the Pacific Opera Project will move the entire show to three different venues throughout St. James Church, with each representing a different location within the opera. This "moving production" is sure to be something no one, even regular opera-goers, has ever seen before. Learn More

RUN to see POP's production of Sweeney Todd! It will restore your faith in theatre. The performances are strong, the choreography and staging fabulous and the costumes exquisite! I loved it. The actors portraying Sweeney and Mrs. Lovett are amazing!!
Their biggest undertaking yet, POP is presenting a visceral thriller in two blood-curdling, barbarous acts: Stephen Sondheim’s Sweeney Todd. The production features two outstanding casts who have appeared at such places as Chautauqua Opera, Chicago Opera Theater, The Glimmerglass Festival, Indianapolis Opera, Los Angeles Opera, Santa Fe Opera, on television and on Broadway.
POP is presenting the show at two of its favorite venues, with five performances at the Porticoes Theater in Pasadena and four at the Miles Memorial Playhouse in Santa Monica, so whether you’re on the Eastside or the Westside, there is a convenient venue for you to experience the psychological drama that has been captivating audiences for decades.
Performed with operatic voices and live orchestra, POP will present this musical drama in all its grisly glory. The show is designed and directed by Josh Shaw, conducted by Stephen Karr, with a cast featuring bass-baritone Phil Meyer as the demonic barber and mezzo-soprano Amanda Carlin as the doting baker, Mrs. Lovett. Baritone Timothy Campbell plays the young Anthony Hope, and his darling Johanna is performed by Hallie Silverston. E. Scott Levin returns to the POP stage as Judge Turpin with another POP veteran, Robert Norman as his Beadle. Rounding out the cast is Rachel Payne (Beggar Woman), Eddie Sayles (Tobias Ragg), Alex Rodin Mendoza (Pirelli) and David Fetterman (Jonas Fogg). The alternate cast will give two performances (October 26 and November 2), and features Alexis Wesley (Lovett), Emma-Grace Dunbar (Johanna), Christopher Remmel (Turpin), Micheal Lee Smith (Beadle), Emily Works (Beggar Woman) and Kyle Patterson (Tobias Ragg).
Accompanied by chamber orchestra.
