Under the iron hand of sinister Scarpia, the lovers Tosca and Cavaradossi are unable to raise their voices except to express discouragement and defeat, portrayed as victims. Suitable for all tastes, this is a vibrant and explicit version, set on a revolving stage accompanied by video projections. Proof of this is the almost cinematographic pace of the dramatic action, the abundance of leitmotiv examples and the massive orchestration, which reaches its heights in scenes like the «Te Deum» or the interrogation scene.

Starring Anna Netrebko, Jonas Kaufmann, Joseph Calleja, Carlos Álvarez and the great Sondra Radvanovsky, who was emotionally requested for an encore for the second time ever in Teatro Real's history.
