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.

There's Ferruccio Tagliavini and Roberto Tagliavini.
And moving away from singers and onto characters, what about those similarly named bel canto heroines: Adina and Amina? Elivira is a character in I Puritani, Ernani and Don Giovanni. Rodolfo is the hero of both Luisa Miller and La Boheme. And let's not get into all those English queens, Elisabetta di Whatnot anyone?

Leonora in 3 of Verdi鈥檚 operas, Oberto, Forza and Trovatore, and also in Donizetti鈥檚 La Favorita.
