    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.”

    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.
