Tosca (season 22/23) - Joseph Calleja (Mario Cavaradossi) and Saioa Hernández (Tosca)

To coincide with the revival of Giacomo Puccini's Tosca, directed by Pierre Audi, we meet conductor Paolo Bortolameolli, vocal coach Sandra Westphal, and Yves Gautier and Samantha Claverie from the props department. Each of them sheds light on this lyric drama in three acts: the score's Verismo, Floria Tosca's dilemma and the tragedy of her lover Mario Cavaradossi's execution.
