Puccini’s Tosca is one of the most popular and widely performed in operatic history. Since its premiere, audiences around the world have been captivated by its story of love, lust, revenge and sacrifice, woven with torture, murder and suicide into a tragic love story with some of Puccini’s best-known lyrical arias such as “vissi d’arte, vissi d’amore” (Lived for Love, Lived for Arts) and “E lucevan le stelle” (And the stars shone).
This brand-new OHK production of Tosca will be directed by Vincent Boussard who is leading a talented international creative team from France and Belgium for the set, costume and lighting design. The music accompaniment will be provided by the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of Yves Abel. Once again, OHK will bring the splendour and drama of opera singers to Hong Kong, including Oksana Dyka, Anna Nechaeva, Roberto Aronica, Rame Lahaj, Claudio Sgura, Sun Li, Gabriele Ribis and many others. These artists are truly world leading opera singers of the top tier and they are ready to devote their superb performances to Hong Kong audience.
