A Royal Opera House performance will be beamed in to Cheltenham's Parabola Arts Centre next weekend.

Audience members will be able to watch Puccini's Tosca on a big screen as part of an innovative event on Saturday, October 20.

Angela Gheorghiu, Jonas Kaufmann and Bryn Terfel are among the stars recorded live under the baton of Antonio Pappano in the revival by Opera Anywhere.

Mike Woodward, the company's Managing Director, said: "We love to bring opera anywhere we can.

"We are absolutely delighted to be able to bring the magnificent Royal Opera House production to the big screen in high definition sound and video.

"It gives everyone the chance to see the best at an affordable price."

The ever-popular Tosca, part of the Royal Opera House Cinema Programme, features a gripping story and a tragic end performed by a fabulous cast.

Jonathan Kent's detailed production draws to the full on the historical backdrop of Rome in 1800, a political world of control and suspicion.

The pageantry of church ritual, the darkness of a brooding study with its hidden torture chamber and the false optimism of the light of a Roman dawn all feature in this captivating tale.

The show starts at 7.30pm and tickets, priced £15 or £12 for concessions, are available from the box office on 01242 707338.
