Premiere TOSCAGiacomo Puccini
Puccini’s Tosca is a musical drama in the real sense of the word. This three-act opera thriller on love, lust, jealousy and political intrigue is rich with music of passionate and dramatic accents, vividly illustrating each thought, feeling and atmosphere. In the world of intolerance and tyranny of the power elite, a woman who lives for love and art takes in hand the initiative and decides on unconditional freedom, be it personal, artistic or political. In the musical sense, Puccini brilliantly subordinates the dense orchestration to singing passages. It is after ten years that the Rijeka audience will be able to see a new Tosca. Under the baton of Yordan Kamdzhalov and in the dramaturgy and in the direction of Marin Blažević – there will be no shortage of surprises, dramatic as well as musical. The soloist cast is led by our national soloists Kristina Kolar and Giorgio Surian.
