Three of today’s great singing actors—Patricia Racette, Jonas Kaufmann, and Bryn Terfel—take on the leading roles in Puccini’s thrilling opera that blends love, politics, and raw passion into an extraordinary theatrical masterpiece. Innocently caught between her lover, the freethinking painter Cavaradossi (Kaufmann), and Baron Scarpia, Rome’s evil chief of police (Terfel), the beautiful singer Floria Tosca (Racette) must make the impossible choice between her honor and Cavaradossi’s life—only to be betrayed in the end. Met Principal Conductor Fabio Luisi leads the orchestra.
