Tosca (Giacomo Puccini) – New Production
Rivaling the splendor of Franco Zeffirelli’s set and costumes of the Napoleonic era, Sir David McVicar’s ravishing new production offers a splendid backdrop for two extraordinary sopranos sharing the title role of the jealous prima donna: Kristine Opolais and Anna Netrebko. Vittorio Grigolo and Marcelo Álvarez alternate in the role of Tosca’s revolutionary artist lover Cavaradossi, with Bryn Terfel, Michael Volle, and George Gagnidze as the depraved police chief Scarpia. Andris Nelsons conducts.
Conductor: Andris Nelsons
Cast: Kristine Opolais (Tosca), Vittorio Grigolo (Cavaradossi), Bryn Terfel (Scarpia), Patrick Carfizzi (Sacristan)
Approx running time: 3hrs 18 mins
