On Monday, January 10th, Sondra Radvanovsky made her Metropolitan Opera role debut as the passionate title character of Puccini's Tosca on January 10. Radvanovsky is known for excelling in some of the most difficult roles in the soprano repertoire-including Elvira in Ernani, Elena in I Vespri Siciliani, Donna Anna in Don Giovanni, and her acclaimed interpretation of Leonora in Il Trovatore, which she will reprise for a Live in HD transmission later this season. Floria Tosca is the first major Puccini heroine she has sung at the Met.
Tosca, which will be conducted by Marco Armiliato in his first Met performances of this work, also stars Marcelo Álvarez as the painter Cavaradossi, Falk Struckmann as the lecherous Scarpia, and Paul Plishka as the Sacristan. Álvarez sang Cavaradossi in the 2009 new production premiere and Live in HD transmission of Tosca. Luc Bondy returns to direct this cast in his production.
