Love, jealousy, torture, murder, suicide - all packed into a tautly woven drama of passionate musical outbursts and flowing lyricism. Puccini's verismo masterpiece demands a trio of vocal soloists of stellar quality. This Munich Festival production of "Tosca" meets all expectations. Conductor: Fabio Luisi - Stage director: Luc Bondy. The great Finnish soprano Karita Mattila infuses her Tosca with passion and controlled intensity. As her lover Cavaradossi, Jonas Kaufmann once again confirms his status as one of the leading tenors of our time, and Juha Uusitalo's evil Scarpia brims with dark menace.
