Kristine Opolais continues her strong collaboration with the Royal Opera House Covent Garden, returning as Tosca on May 27 & 30, and June 4, 7 & 10. In an interview with The National, Ms. Opolais describes the role of Tosca as something that she has always felt connected to because “there are many similarities in our personalities.” She further goes to describe it, saying, “This is the role that I give myself no limit to, and I will go to the end for it.”

Ms. Opolais shares the stage with a formidable cast including Vittorio Grigòlo as Cavaradossi, Bryn Terfel as Scarpia, Hubert Francis as Spoletta, Michael Mofidian as Angelotti, Jonathan Lemalu as Sacristan, and Jihoon Kim singing Sciarrone. Conductor Alexander Joel will lead the Royal Opera House Orchestra and Chorus from the pit. The production is a revival of Jonathan Kent’s classic staging set in Rome in 1800, with stunning naturalistic set design and period costumes by Paul Brown.

Ms. Opolais is featured as Tosca on a live recording at the Easter Festival Baden-Baden with the Berliner Philharmoniker under the direction of Simon Rattle. Purchase links and more information are available via her Recordings.
