Premiered in 1900 with huge success, Puccini's melodrama Tosca is a political thriller with a heart-breaking love story.
With his gripping opening scene, stage director Michael Sturminger sets the tone for a cinematic, richly detailed Tosca which is set in the Mafiosi world of modern day Rome and which is the perfect thriller reminiscent of Scorseses Goodfellas (Kleine Zeitung), a film noir (FAZ). In this production soprano Anja Harteros is a phenomenal Tosca! (Kurier), unparalleled in the world (Der Standard) and Aleksandrs Antonenko is a Cavaradossi of superlatives (Kieler Nachrichten).
The Staatskapelle Dresden under Christian Thielemann show again that he is not only a master of German repertoire but also strikes the right note in Italian repertoire. (Focus)
Tosca premiered in 1900 at the Teatro Costanzi in Rome. It is one of the world’s most frequently performed operas and is known as much for its gripping drama as for its appealing score. The setting is Rome, where Tosca, a beautiful and famous singer, battles to save her lover Mario from the sadistic police chief Scarpia. The role of Tosca has been long considered a proving ground for great operatic actresses.
