Metropolitan Opera: Tosca
The Metropolitan Opera’s 2021-22 season of live Saturday matinee radio broadcasts continues with one of the core pieces of the Italian opera repertory, Puccini’s Tosca, a searing melodrama that has thrilled audiences since its premiere in 1900.
Met Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin conducts. Soprano Sondra Radvanovsky stars as the diva Floria Tosca, a role in which she’s won extraordinary praise from international audiences and critics.
Tenor Brian Jagde is Tosca’s lover, the artist Mario Cavaradossi, and bass-baritone Evgeny Nikitin is the Baron Scarpia, the brutal police chief.
Tosca will be heard live over Toll Brothers-Metropolitan Opera International Radio Network at 1:00 p.m. ET on Saturday, December 11th. Listen to it on Classical IPR.
