Did You Know?


This production was originally broadcast live in three parts - each part corresponding to each act, each act performed and broadcast from the actual building in which that act takes place in the plot, and at the exact time of day the action in the particular act occurs. None of it was filmed on sets especially built for the production. To accomplish this unheard-of feat, the singers were outfitted with tiny, nearly invisible radio transmitters plugged in their ears, which enabled them to hear the orchestra playing the accompaniments in the studio as the singers actually sang live in their respective locations.

Puccini's Tosca is probably one of the most famous and well known opera in the Western world. This Italian production with Placido Domingo and Catherine Malfitano is simply superb: Malfitano is extremely well as Tosca, her dramatic soprano voice has always delighted me; and Domingo's Mario Cavaradossi is well played, although I'm more partial to Jose Carrera's Cavaradossi. Raimondi is excellent as the evil Scarpia, he is simply enjoying himself playing the villain. And as always, Puccini's melodic and well orchestrated music is so much a pleasure to listen.

The production values are very well done, giving the opera a you're there atmosphere. I've always liked this opera, and this made-for-TV production has everything to recommend it to opera buffs such as myself.
