No, Tosca is not a new-fangled name for a Nabisco cracker. It’s an opera. A classic one, apparently.
And PBS suggests putting ‘Tosca’ on your to-watch list
Go ahead, like Small Screen Scoop on Facebook.
This Sunday afternoon, PBS is airing “Great Performances at the Met: Tosca.” It features Patricia Racette and Roberto Alagna.
Puccini’s enduring favorite, starring an exceptional trio of singing actors in the leading roles, returns to Great Performances at the Met Sunday, March 9 at 12 p.m. on PBS (check local listings). (In New York, THIRTEEN will air the program on Sunday, March 23 at 8 p.m.)
Acclaimed American soprano Patricia Racette stars in one of opera’s greatest roles as the ultimate diva, Floria Tosca, in Luc Bondy’s production. French tenor Roberto Alagna sings Tosca’s lover, the painter Cavaradossi, and Georgian baritone George Gagnidze is the corrupt, lustful Scarpia. Italian maestro Riccardo Frizza conducts Puccini’s sweeping, dramatic tale of murder, lust, and political intrigue.
Soprano Renée Fleming hosts the broadcast.
