In their debut presentation in Malmesbury Abbey, Bath Opera’s 2022 tour production will be ‘Tosca’, one of Puccini’s most popular operas.
This most dramatic of operas charts the doomed love of painter Cavaradossi and opera diva Tosca under a despotic regime, whose cruel and ruthless chief of police Scarpia pursues them to the end. Among the arias made famous by Maria Callas and Luciano Pavarotti are ‘Vissi d’Arte’ and ‘E Lucevan le Stelle’. Musical Director will be Peter Blackwood and Stage Director Jane Clark.
The cast is led by the Moldova Opera star Ghiulnara Raileanu, and supported by Bath Opera regular soloists, including Robert Felstead as Cavaradossi, and Niall Hoskin as Scarpia. The full cast may be seen at www.bathopera.com/Tosca. On this page there is also a link to Ghiulnara singing the role of Tosca in Moldova. A real treat!
