The Met's new production of Giacomo Puccini's Tosca, everyone's favorite operatic potboiler, is the next feature, showing at 1 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 27. Staged by David McVicar, the production is conducted by Emmanuel Villaume and stars Sonya Yoncheva, Vittorio Grigolo and Zelkjo Lucic.
Here's my take on an opera filled with politics, love, passion, murder and sexual abuse.
Timely then, timely now.
See Tosca live, broadcast from the Met, at 1 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 27. Check here for the theater nearest to you.
