A month focusing all things woman inspired would not be complete without … TOSCA! She lived for music, she lived for love, she lived for the great reviews that are rolling in for the Opera Company of Philadelphia’s production of Tosca.
David Patrick Stearns of Philly.com praises the heroine, “Romanian soprano Adina Nitescu made an extremely promising entrance as Tosca, with a gleaming, seamless voice, with none of the shrillness often heard from Eastern Europeans. She was less convincing in the Act 2 histrionics; her account of the “Vissi d’arte” aria hadn’t the best breath control. Make a note to catch her in five years.”
