Tosca Live from La Scala
7th December 2019 5:00 pm
This fantastic new production of Giacomo Puccini’s Tosca follows the publication of musicologist Roger Parker’s critical edition for Ricordi. The Music Director Riccardo Chailly presents Puccini’s work in the light of this most recent research, building on the great success of La Scala’s Turandot, La fanciulla del West, Madama Butterfly and Manon Lescaut.
Giacomo Puccini’s masterpieces have so far been presented in versions that often bear the burden of tradition. With the return of Director Davide Livermore, already highly acclaimed for Attila, this inaugural version of Tosca will be first and foremost at a music festival. Combined with the stunning stage set design of Giò Forma and the powerful voices of Anna Netrebko and Luca Salsi, this thrilling spectacle is not to be missed.
This exciting event will be broadcast live from one of the world’s greatest opera houses; the Teatro alla Scala in Milan.
