Arizona Opera continues a season themed “The Price of Passion” with this perennially popular work by Puccini. The title character is a raven-haired beauty in love with political dissident in Rome in 1800. The corrupt police chief captures and tortures her paramour, then offers to free him in exchange for carnal concessions. Even by opera standards, it’s a lurid tale with an especially brutal denouement, but it also features some of the most beautiful arias ever written.
