Floria Tosca is perhaps the truest of Puccini's rich arsenal of fascinating female characters, and few are able to bring her to the stage as truly as world star Anna Netrebko. "Tosca", first performed in Rome in 1900, is considered the work in which Puccini comes closest to "verismo". Michael Sturminger will direct the production and Marco Armiliato will conduct. ARTE will broadcast the recording on Thursday, 16 September at 8.15 pm on TV.
