The Met Opera Live in HD: Tosca

Tosca

Giacomo Puccini

Estimated Run Time 2hrs 53mins

Undoubtedly one the most regarded and cherished works of Puccini, this tragic tale of love, lust, revenge and murder is renewed with this brand new production. Sit back and be transported to 18th century Rome on the edge of Napoleon’s invasion in this marvelous melodramatic masterpiece.

Rivaling the splendor of Franco Zeffirelli’s set and costumes of the Napoleonic era, Sir David McVicar offers a splendid backdrop for two extraordinary sopranos sharing the title role of the jealous prima donna: Sonya Yoncheva (pictured above in La Traviata) and Anna Netrebko. Vittorio Grigolo and Marcelo Álvarez alternate in the role of Tosca’s revolutionary artist lover Cavaradossi, with Bryn TerfelTosca, Michael Volle, and Željko Lučić as the depraved police chief Scarpia. Andris Nelsons conducts.

Sung in Italian
