This spring, Kristine Opolais stars in the title role of Puccini’s Tosca, in a series of performances in Baden-Baden and Berlin. Ms. Opolais takes the stage in a new production at the Festspielhaus Baden-Baden on April 7, 10, 13 & 17 (please note April 7 is a Gala performance), with Sir Simon Rattle on the podium leading the Berlin Philharmonic. Philipp Himmelmann directs the production, with set designs from Raimund Bauer; Marcelo Álvarez is Cavaradossi and Evgeny Nikitin sings Baron Scarpia for all performances. These not-to-be-missed events are featured as part of the Easter Festival at the venue.
Following the dates in Baden-Baden the artists travel to the Berlin Philharmonie to present Tosca in concert on April 22. This one-night event will also be streamed live via the Berlin Philharmonic’s Digital Concert Hall, in addition to the April 17 performance; more information about the broadcasts is available here.
