Tosca, English National Opera, Sept 2022Posted on 3 October 2022
As a musical performance of Tosca this was simply wonderful. The opera is straightforward to stage, requiring only three sets: the interior of a large church, a substantial apartment (Scarpia’s) in the vast Farnese Palace, and the upper parts of the Castel Sant’Angelo, all in Rome. This new production for the English National Opera — imported from the Finnish National Opera — gives us an additional set. See my review in The Article.
