Until October 18, 2016, Opera Bastille will be putting on a show of the prominent Italian composer Giacomo Puccini’s melodrama, Tosca (1900).
Written by Puccini in cooperation with the Italian composer Franco Alfano, Tosca is actually considered among the best operas that have been created in the early 20th century. It is inspired from the French play, La Tosca (1887) by Victorien Sardou with a libretto to the two librettists Luigi Illica and Giuseppe Giacosa.
The performance of Tosca at Opera Bastille is led by conductor Dan Ettinger and gathers some of the best operatic singers including Anja Harteros, Liudmyla Monastyrska, Marcelo Alvarez, Bryn Terfel, Sergey Artamonov, Alexander Tsymbalyuk, Jean-Philippe Lafont, Carlo Bosi, Pierpaolo Palloni, and André Heyboer.
The show lasts approximately 2 hours and 50 minutes and includes 2 intermissions.
Opera Bastille is at a short distance from our Hotel Louvre Marsollier Opera Paris. Don’t miss the show if you’re staying at our hotel! 😉
