For the Easter Festival 2017 in Baden-Baden, Sir Simon Rattle and the Berliner Philharmoniker drew their inspiration from Tosca, one of the most brilliant operas from Puccini. 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 offers a fresh view on this beloved classic.
