Editorial Reviews

This production of Tosca filmed at the Teatro Carlo Felice in Genoa, with its stage set based on Adolf Hohenstein's original design for the work's premiere, brings together the best contemporary soprano-tenor combination Daniela Dessi and Fabio Armiliato who are ranged against a worthy opponent in the form of Claudio Sgura as Baron Scarpia. Such a combination of gentleman and scoundrel in one person is a perfect candidate to 'make all Rome tremble before him'. Tosca is a classic example of Puccini's three-person dramatic structure - a tragic pair of lovers juxtaposed with an interfering baritone! But these traditional roles are portrayed here in a much more realistic and psychologically accurate manner than usual. In vocal and dramatic terms however, the main attraction remains the title figure and the reason why the work became the archetypal prima donna opera.

SINGING AND PRODUCTION ARE EXCELLENT. TOSCA AND CAVARADOSSI SING NICE TOGETHER. BARON SCARPIA IS ALSO EXCELLENT AND HIS CHARACTER AND VOICE FIT THE PART.

I was very surprised that Dessi was cast as Tosca - she is unsuitable for this role both vocally and dramatically. Her Vissi d'arte does not move one emotionally! And it's Vissi d'arte!!! It is a sad sign of the sorry state of the operatic world that we are being served shoddy work such as this performance. For a good Tosca I would recommend either Tebaldi or Gheorghiu.
