Description

Tosca (Blu-ray) - Kaufmann

Superstar opera tenor Jonas Kaufmann is featured in this Decca DVD, the next in a series of highly successful and critically acclaimed opera DVDs from the artist.

The DVD features him in a key role that he is performing to great critical acclaim all over the world.  You could sense amazement throughout the house at his thrilling top notes during Cavaradossi's defiant cries of "Vittoria!" Yet his plaintive pianissimo phrases were equally impressive. That the youthful, curly-haired Mr. Kaufmann is also heartthrob-handsome did not hurt."

Mostly Opera Magazine reviewed that he is "the undisputed leading Cavaradossi of our day" and about Emily Magee, his Tosca, "sings the part better than anyone I can imagine today". The two stars are joined by baritone Thomas Hampson in the role of Scarpia.

History

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.
