** In the second act, after ''Vissi d'arte'', Scarpia behaves as if he's moved by Tosca's pleading… [[BaitTheDog for about ten seconds]].

** 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.

!!''Tosca'' in other medias:

* Film/JamesBond spies on a [[NebulousEvilOrganization Quantum]] meeting which takes place during a representation of ''Tosca'' during the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bregenzer_Festspiele Bregenz Festival]] in ''Film/QuantumOfSolace''. The representation is real, the scenes were filmed on the Seebühne (floating stage) in June 2008.
* In the mission "Curtains down" from ''VideoGame/HitmanBloodMoney'', 47 is sent to kill a great opera singer and child rapist, Alvaro D'Alvade, and his protector Richard Delahunt at the Paris Opera House, while D'Alvade is rehearsing the execution scene from ''Tosca''. You can get the actor killed [[NotSoFakePropWeapon by switching the prop gun used for the scene with a real one]], or mask your own shot by firing at the same time as the executioner.
* The Agatha Christie short story ''Swan Song'' involves a soprano who really stabs the baritone during a performance of ''Tosca''.
* Pauline is listening to "E lucevan le stelle" in ''Film/HeavenlyCreatures'' when told she can't see Juliet anymore until her grades and attitude improve.
* ''Manga/GunslingerGirl''. One of the missions takes place during a showing of Tosca, and we see just about every important scene at least in part. Claes has apparently memorized Tosca's whole cry to God speech/aria, which seems somehow appropriate.
