In partnership with Sierra Theaters and Music in the Mountains:
At Del Oro Theater – November 9, 2013 at 9:55am
Approximate running time 3 hrs. 10 min.
Puccini’s timeless verismo score is well served by two exceptional casts. Patricia Racette and Sondra Radvanovsky share the title role of the jealous diva, opposite two leading tenors—Roberto Alagna and Marcello Giordani. George Gagnidze is the villainous Scarpia.
“Alagna bedazzles… [delivering] a soaring, high-octane “E lucevan le stelle,” earning a generous cheer for his intense and sensitively phrased singing.” (Classical Review)
“Racette brings plenty of jealous passion to the part of Tosca…
Gagnidze’s commanding baritone gave a fearsome malevolence to Scarpia.”
Tosca is a co-production of the Metropolitan Opera, the Bayerische Staatsoper and the Teatro alla Scala.
