tosca_met13Puccini’s timeless verismo score is well served by two exceptional casts. Patricia Racette and Sondra Radvanovsky share the title role of the jealous diva, opposite two leading tenors—Roberto Alagna and Marcello Giordani. George Gagnidze is the villainous Scarpia.

Tosca is a co-production of the Metropolitan Opera, the Bayerische Staatsoper and the Teatro alla Scala.
