A trio of international opera stars perform the most thrilling music from Puccini’s most well-loved opera. Meanwhile, the Henchman steps from the shadows to tell this tale of a deadly spiral of true love, sadistic lust and murder. He does the dirty work for Rome’s top secret policeman, and lets us into the secret of where the bodies are hidden.

It’s opera, Giacomo, but not as we know it. All the way from the Met, Covent Garden and Milan to Oran Mor, a trio of international opera stars will perform the most thrilling music from Puccini’s most well-loved opera. Meanwhile, the Henchman steps out of the shadows to give us his fly-on-the-wall take on this tale of a deadly spiral of true love, sadistic lust and murder. All the dirty work for Rome’s top secret policeman, an arrogant demagogue and sexual predator, is carried out by the Henchman…so he knows where all the bodies are hidden and who has the negatives.

Alexander Tarbet, author of international best-selling Amsterdam based detective novel, ‘Mokum’, has lived and worked in London, Amsterdam, and San Francisco.
