Tosca and Fosca

Tosca is, of course, the 1900 Puccini opera named after the main character, Tosca, who flings herself off a parapet at the end.

Fosca is the ailing and dying protagonist/antagonist from Stephen Sondheim's musical (really an operetta) Passion. The story was adapted from Ettore Scola's 1981 film Passione d'Amore, and its source material, Iginio Ugo Tarchetti's 1869 novel Fosca.
