The Met Live in HD: Puccini's Tosca

James Levine will conduct the Met’s new production of Puccini’s Tosca.

Mr. Levine, who now holds the title of Music Director Emeritus, has a long history of conducting Tosca at the Met, including his very first Met performance in June 1971, when he led a cast of Grace Bumbry as Tosca and Franco Corelli as Cavaradossi. He conducted performances of Tosca with Bumbry, Plácido Domingo,and Tito Gobbi in the Met’s 1971-72 season, and more recently, Levine conducted the premiere of Luc Bondy's staging of the opera in September 2009, which the new production will replace.

Sonya Yoncheva is the first artist to have three principal roles in the same HD season. In addition to Tosca on January 27, 2018, she stars as Mimì in Puccini’s La Bohème on February 24, 2018, and as Luisa in Verdi’s Luisa Miller on April 14, 2018.

Vittorio Grigolo will perform the role of Cavaradossi.

Running time: 2 hours, 53 minutes (includes two 30 minute intermissions)

Tickets: $25 Adult / $23 LT member / $5 Youth 18 and under

Pre-Opera Talk with Dr. Morton Achter
"The 'Alpha Woman' in 19th-Century Opera"
11:45 AM

Last season we surveyed the "vulnerable woman” in 19th-century opera; this time we consider the "alpha woman,” of whom Puccini’s character of Floria Tosca is a (perhaps the) prime example.
