NEW PRODUCTION

Giacomo Puccini
Run Time: 2 hours, 53 minutes
Live Performance Broadcast

Sung in: Italian

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: Sonya Yoncheva 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 Željko Lučić as the depraved police chief Scarpia. Andris Nelsons conducts.

Production a gift of Jaqueline Desmarais, in memory of Paul G. Desmarais Sr; The Paiko Foundation; and Elena Prokupets. Major funding from Rolex
