In Detail

The Music Director Riccardo Chailly presents Puccini’s work in the light of this most recent research, building on the great success of La Scala’s 'Turandot', 'La Fanciulla del West', 'Madama Butterfly' and 'Manon Lescaut'.

Giacomo Puccini’s masterpieces have so far been presented in versions that often bear the burden of tradition. With the return of Director Davide Livermore, already highly acclaimed for 'Attila', this inaugural version of 'Tosca' will be first and foremost at a music festival. Combined with the stunning stage set design of Giò Forma and the powerful voices of Anna Netrebko and Luca Salsi, this thrilling spectacle is not to be missed. Sung in Italian with English subtitles

Tosca: Anna Netrebko - Cavaradossi: Luca Salsi - Angelotti: Vladimir Sazdovski - Sagrestano: Alfonso Antoniozzi - Spoletta: Carlo Bosi - Sciarrone: Giulio Mastrototaro.
