"Tosca combines Puccini's glorious musical inspiration with the melodramatic vitality of one of the great Hitchcock films," says Music Director James Levine who conducted the opening night performance. "From the very first bar of the piece, the opera seizes you and keeps you on the edge of your seat until the last note." Karita Mattila, who sings the title role for the first time at the Met, says, "There are so many fascinating qualities to Tosca. At first I thought, 'How will it feel to kill somebody on stage?' But Tosca is like an action movie, and the drama just happens." Luc Bondy, acclaimed for his imaginative theater and opera productions, directs. Jonas Kaufmann and Marcello Giordani share the role of Cavaradossi, and Bryn Terfel and George Gagnidze alternate as Scarpia. Daniela Dessi sings the title role in the later performances.
