Attavanti, Marchese

Quick Reference

(Puccini: Tosca). This lady does not appear in the opera but is referred to on several occasions. She is the sister of Angelotti, the escaped political prisoner who is hidden by Cavaradossi. The painting of the Madonna on which Cavaradossi is working is noted by the Sacristan to look like the Marchese who visits the church. This likeness is also commented on with great jealousy by Tosca.

Subjects: Opera.
