OPERA CONCERT

TOSCA, by Giacomo Puccini

TOSCA, by Giacomo Puccini
PUCCINI’S CELEBRATED OPERA WITH A ALL-STAR CAST
Since 1900, this opera has always one of the five most frequently performed works in the entire repertoire, as audiences love this masterpiece by the composer of Luca. The combination of brutality and lyricism, narrated with a great sense of rhythm and dramatic upward tension, in addition to the intensity and complexity of its characters, make this opera one of Puccini’s most striking pieces. The work, which is set in the context of a Rome in full upheaval, swarming with Napoleonic troops, speaks of love, faith, blackmail, desire, death, corruption, and the different feelings that guide the protagonist trio. Floria Tosca is at the centre of a musical drama that shows great realism and psychological strength. The careful instrumentalisation and melodic strength, reinforced by Puccini’s superbly crafted acoustic environments, transport concert-goers from the church at Sant'Andrea Valle to the rooms of the Farnese palace or the terrace of Sant'Angelo castle, all while giving clues to the events to come. Sondra Radvanovsky, Jonas Kaufmann and Carlos Álvarez have been cast as the trio leading an exceptional cast for this performance. Supported by the choir and orchestra from the Teatro Real in Madrid, and under the musical direction of Nicola Luisotti as the conductor, this concert version of Tosca will be a memorable event for opera fans.
