Tosca on screen
15 August @ 7:00 pm - 9:10 pm£10
Superstar opera tenor Jonas Kaufmann is featured in this filmed performance of Puccini’s Tosca. It features him in a key role that he is performing to great critical acclaim all over the world. Of performances at the Metropolitan Opera, the New York Times said: “Mr. Kaufmann received frenzied bravos from the audience. His russet-coloured voice has body and charisma. You could sense amazement throughout the house at his thrilling top notes during Cavaradossi’s defiant cries of “Vittoria!” Yet his plaintive pianissimo phrases were equally impressive. That the youthful, curly-haired Mr. Kaufmann is also heartthrob-handsome did not hurt.” Mostly Opera Magazine reviewed that he is “the undisputed leading Cavaradossi of our day” and about Emily Magee, his Tosca, “sings the part better than anyone I can imagine today”. The two stars are joined by baritone Thomas Hampson in the role of Scarpia.
