Puccini’s Tosca—an arresting thriller about lust, political corruption, and murder—is brought to life by Patricia Racette in the lead role of the jealous diva who gets duped by the villainous Scarpia, and is denied her true love. Once famously referred to as a “shabby little shocker,” the HD opera viewing is proceeded by a free lecture that helps set the scene.

Saturday 11/23. $18-24, 1pm. The Paramount Theater, 215 E. Main St., Downtown Mall. 979-1333.
