Storyline

The story intertwines the actions of the underground movement in Rome in 1944 against the Germans by a group of opera performers who are part of the Italian resistance, with their presentation of "Tosca", which is also concerned with the city's occupation, but during the Napoleonic era. Unlike some of their "Tosca" counterparts, the troupe members live to perform before the Allied troops. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>
