For this year’s Easter Festival in Baden-Baden, Sir Simon Rattle and the Berliner Philharmoniker will draw their inspiration from Tosca, the most well-known and also most brilliant of all the Puccini operas. And that is deservedly so, since Tosca is not merely a work of art, but also a gripping suspense-packed story. With Kristine Opolais as Tosca and a spectacular staging by Philipp Himmelmann this production will offer a fresh view on this beloved classic composition.
