Puccini's Tosca dates from 1900. It is a sombre tragedy based on the play written for Sarah Bernhardt by Sardou, the most successful of French dramatists of the latter half of the nineteenth century.
The story takes place in Rome at the time of the Napoleonic wars. The scene of Act I is the inside of a church-. Cavaradossi, an artist, is painting a Madonna. As soon as he is alone, an escaped prisoner comes out of a chapel near at hand and asks for help. Cavaradossi recognises him as his friend Angelotti, and furthers his escape. No sooner has he gone than the voice of Tosca is heard. She and Cavaradossi are in love, and Tosca, having heard voices, and suspecting an assignation, is jealous. Cavaradossi dispels her doubts.
Now Scarpia. chief of police, enters in search of Angelotti, who has been traced to this church. He suspects Cavaradossi of having aided the prisoner and, being himself in love with Tosca, decides to order the arrest of the painter and thus be rid of a rival.

Grieg's Lyric Suite is made up of certain piano pieces which lend themselves admirably to transcription for orchestra. They were first arranged by the conductor Anton Seidl , and later re-arranged even more admirably by Grieg himself. The suite is among the most popular of all Grieg's orchestral music.
