    CLO presents ‘Tosca’ at Garde

    For its latest production, the Connecticut Lyric Opera is taking on Puccini’s “Tosca,” with a performance Sunday at the Garde Arts Center.

    Jurate Svedaite and Daniel Juarez in a 2017 production of Tosca at the Greve Opera Academy and Chamber Music Festival in Greve-in-Chianti, Italy.

    Adrian Sylveen conducts the show, which will feature the Connecticut Virtuosi chamber orchestra.

    Soprano Jurate Svedate sings the role of Floria Tosca. Also starring in “Tosca” are Daniel Juarez as Mario Cavaradossi, Steven Fredericks as Baron Scarpia, and Stefan Szkafarowsky as A Sacristan.

    The story, which is set in Rome, finds Tosca’s lover, Mario Cavaradossi, as the target of Queen Maria-Carolina. The queen, you see, doesn’t like anyone questioning her authority. She addresses any such rebels by having her police chief, Baron Scarpia, execute them.

    “Tosca,” 4 p.m. Sunday, Garde Arts Center, 325 State St., New London; $35, $45; gardearts.org, (860) 444-7373.
