Tosca is based on the play, La Tosca, by the French playwright, Victorien Sardou, which Puccini felt was a perfect choice to adapt into an opera. Puccini saw the play a handful of times in Milan and Turin, and began negotiations with Sardou and his agents, but Sardou wanted a French composer to adapt the play. Through some further negotiations with Ricordi (the head of the publishing company), Sardou agreed to give the rights to Puccini. Luigi
