Live from the Easter Festival: Simon Rattle conducts “Tosca”

In Puccini’s Tosca, moments of love and intimacy alternate with jealousy, hatred and sadistic brutality at a breathtaking pace. Puccini characterises this wide range of emotions with a musical language that is both beautiful and has psychological depth. In 2017, Simon Rattle conducted the work to great applause at the Easter Festival in Baden-Baden. The principal roles were sung by Kristine Opolais, Marcelo Álvarez and Marco Vratogna.
