Palace Opera Ballet presents Teatro alla Scala’s season opening gala, a new production of Puccini’s 1900 masterpiece, Tosca, with Anna Netrebko singing the title role. For the fifth consecutive year, opera’s grandest night of the year and one of Europe’s most anticipated annual cultural events comes to the big screen at Palace cinemas, captured live from Milan on 7 December, 2019.
Maestro Riccardo Chailly reprises his collaboration with Davide Livermore and Giò Forma in this new staging. Anna Netrebko is the glamourous singer Floria Tosca, who catches the eye of the corrupt police chief Baron Scarpia (Luca Salsi) as he plots to destroy her lover, Mario Cavaradossi (Francesco Meli), a politically rebellious painter.
