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.
