Portraying the title role in Puccini's masterpiece will be one of the greatest stars of our time: Anna Netrebko, who embodies the entire essence of opera in a single person - and practically by popular demand, at that, since she sang the part for the first time at the Met not long ago, in 2018, to tremendous acclaim. One of the most popular, affecting and condensed pieces in the opera literature, this work derives its dramatic power from the tension between Tosca and the Roman police chief... whose obsession for her drives him to the point of self-surrender. Portraying the monstrous Scarpia will be one of the most sought-after baritones in the opera world, the German Michael Volle, who has recently sung at Müpa Busapest as well. Taking the stage as the third member of the love triangle, the young painter Cavaradossi, will be American tenor Brian Jagde, who has been conquering the international opera world chiefly in roles from Puccini, while the Sacristan will be played by Patrick Carfizzi, a marvellous American baritone who is a veteran of more than 300 performances at the Met since 1999.
Responsible for the rapidly moving and emotionally jarring music, which keeps one practically riveted to one's seat at the climactic moments, will be the highly respected opera conductor Bertrand de Billy, in an amazing production full of spectacular and sumptuously detailed tableaux by Sir David McVicar.
