Tosca's Kiss is a radio play by Craig Warner, inspired by the libretto to Pucini's Tosca opera. It was first broadcast on BBC Radio 3 on 03 February 2013[1]


Set in a violently oppressive regime where men and women have fought to resist the domination of a malign government. Baron Scarpia's musings on the nature of power, and on his love for the opera singer, Tosca, give way to a cat-and-mouse game in which the stakes are all-or-nothing. But inspired to fight for her lover Cavaradossi, Tosca's arsenal holds weapons against which Scarpia has no defence.
