Austin Opera: Puccini's Tosca
OK, how you gonna stage a complete opera, live, in person, when the last dregs of a pandemic are still complicating this modern life? Eureka: Do it at the Circuit of the Americas, the city's Formula 1 racetrack! Austin Opera’s much-anticipated return to live performance is an innovative outdoor staging of Puccini’s Tosca in just that venue, featuring the orchestra and chorus conducted by Timothy Myers, with David Lefkowich directing the whole massive undertaking. Note: Making their Austin Opera debuts in Tosca are a trio of important international artists: A recent Opera News cover star, soprano Latonia Moore is Tosca, the fiery diva caught in the crossfire of love; tenor Adam Smith makes his role debut as the heroic Cavaradossi; and baritone Aleksey Bogdanov is the evil Scarpia.
