Saturday 27th January - The Metropolitan Opera New York presents Puccini's Tosca

Sir David McVicar’s ravishing new production offers a splendid backdrop for the soprano in the title role as the jealous prima donna Tosca: Sonya Yoncheva. Vittorio Grigolo takes on the role of Tosca’s revolutionary artist lover Cavaradossi, with Sir Bryn Terfel as the depraved police chief Scarpia. (Sonya Yoncheva as Tosca and Željko Lucic as Scarpia in an Act II rehearsal for David McVicar's new production of "Tosca".
