Superstar Anja Harteros excels in the title role of Michael Sturminger’s cinematic staging of Giacomo Puccini’s Tosca, the centrepiece of Salzburg Easter Festival. Aleksandrs Antoņenko compellingly portrays Cavaradossi,
while Ludovic Tézier is a thrillingly malevolent Scarpia. Christian Thielemann leads the Staatskapelle Dresden. How German Anja Harteros lays bare Floria Tosca’s heart, how she differentiates the nuances of Tosca’s feelings “is unparalleled in the world” (Der Standard).

A police van in a bleak underground car park, flashing blue lights, gun shots being fired: With his gripping opening scene, stage director Michael Sturminger sets the tone for a cinematic, richly detailed “Tosca” which is set in the Mafiosi world of modern day Rome and which is “the perfect thriller … reminiscent of Scorsese’s ‘Goodfellas’” (Kleine Zeitung), a “film noir” (FAZ).
