Tosca—the fiery Italian diva—passionately in love with the revolutionary Cavaradossi—and relentlessly pursued by the dangerous Baron Scarpia, who will stop at nothing to see Tosca in his bed and her lover dead!
One of today’s go-to Toscas, Emily Magee “supplies hot-coals vocalism…she is the very incarnation of the high-maintenance diva.” —The Dallas Morning News
With his “matinee idol looks,” Chilean tenor Giancarlo Monsalve* is “always commanding…singing with burning intensity.” —The Dallas Morning News
Raymond Aceto boasts a “brawny bass well-suited to the role of Scarpia, a particularly ruthless villain—even for opera”! —D Magazine
