Careful not to mess with the diva! In Giacomo Puccini’s Tosca, a fiery prima donna struggles to free her true love from the clutches of a ruthless police chief.
This evergreen audience favorite is filled with iconic arias and impressive musical moments, and a rousing score brings emotional extremes into sharp relief as the story rushes towards its thrilling conclusion. The crackling melodrama grabs hold from the get-go, which not only makes Tosca ideal for anyone who loves drama and music but is also a great night out for the first-time operagoer. (The English translation for this fast-paced shocker is projected above the action – instant understanding!)
Tosca is structured as a series of duets, each of which is actually an entertaining competition. The affectionate friction between the two lovers, the opera diva Tosca and artist Cavaradossi is at least as compelling as the fierce and deadly battle between the malevolent police chief Scarpia and his prey, Tosca—a competition which, her final line threatens, might just continue in the next world.
Tosca rounds out the season with an internationally renowned cast including soprano Alexandra Loutsion, tenor Dominick Chenes, and baritone Daniel Sutin, returning for his fifth appearance with the company. As an added bonus, OLV favorite bass-baritone Adelmo Guidarelli is featured as the Sacristan. Joshua Horsch is at the podium, Audrey Chait directs, Chorus Master is Joseph Svendsen.
