** Cavaradossi is a ''dramatic'' tenor, which takes him out of the "boy" class. It requires a fairly strong set of pipes to do him justice.

* HopeSpot: Right before the "fake" execution, Tosca and Cavaradossi playfully tease each other and make plans about their happy future together.
** This can depend on the production. In some stagings, Cavaradossi's expression and body language imply that he knows he will be killed and is putting on an act to cheer up Tosca.

* LyricalDissonance: Scarpia has all these gorgeously melodic tunes. He's singing about his plots to rape Tosca, kill Cavaradossi, and generally be as nasty as possible. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OybPHZN8P3E This all happens while he's *in a church*, with the congregation singing the "Te Deum"]] right behind him.
** His second VillainSong, ''Ha più forte sapore'', in which he sings about how he likes to win women by force, is also quite lovely to hear.
