Simon Rattle conducts “Tosca”

In 2017, the audience in the Philharmonie rewarded Simon Rattle’s interpretation of Puccini’s operatic thriller Tosca with standing ovations. In particular, the tonal splendour and vibrant tension of the concert performance received special praise. The Berliner Zeitung wrote: “Equally outstanding was the Latvian soprano Kristine Opolais, whose voice soars above the orchestra with fascinating lightness and at the same time gives Tosca the necessary dramatic weight.”
