Operagasmic Production of the Week
by Christie Connolley
I love to arrive early to the opera. For one, I want to sit down and see what everyone else is wearing…. the gowns, the sequins, THE SHOES! Once that is done, I delve into the program! I want to read the ‘who’s who, all of the singers bios, and the miniature reproductions of their glossy 8 X 10′s (which I usually go back to during intermission and estimate how many years agothat photo was taken), the director’s notes, the conductor’s notes! It is one of the best parts of going to the opera! So let Operagasm get you ready with the down low on new and exciting upcoming productions.
The Operagasmic Production of the Week is Atlanta Opera’s production of Tosca!
Conducted by Carl and Sally Gable Music Director Arthur Fagen
Directed by Tomer Zvulun
Sung in Italian with projected English translations
Lies, lust and corruption turn a tale of love into a struggle for survival in Puccini’s Tosca. Amid the bloodshed of revolutionary Rome, the diva Tosca battles the treacherous police chief Scarpia for the life of her lover, Cavaradossi. Set to Puccini’s intensely passionate music, this gripping melodrama is quintessential opera!
