The Drama of Tosca Opera Philadelphia

The Drama of Tosca - In a special concert adaptation performed and filmed this month at the Mann Center for the Performing Arts, the tragic tale of Tosca takes on a completely new dimension.

Seen through the eyes of an omniscient narrator, this innovative version of Puccini’s beloved work bridges opera and storytelling, highlighting major themes from the original. The Drama of Tosca stars Grammy-winning Puerto Rican soprano Ana María Martínez in her company and title role debuts as Puccini’s troubled heroine, opposite American tenor Brian Jagde, who makes his company debut as Tosca’s doomed lover, the painter Cavaradossi, and baritone Quinn Kelsey in his company and role debuts as the treacherous Baron Scarpia. Jack Mulroney Music Director Corrado Rovaris leads the Opera Philadelphia Orchestra, with Elizabeth Braden leading the Opera Philadelphia Chorus in this special 90-minute concert.
