Simon Rattle conducts “Tosca”

Puccini’s Tosca has had a special place in the history of the Berliner Philharmoniker ever since Herbert von Karajan conducted the opera to great acclaim in Berlin and Salzburg in the 1980s. And now, after almost 30 years, Tosca is programmed once again – this time at the Easter Festival in Baden-Baden, with Simon Rattle as the conductor. The main roles are sung by Kristīne Opolais, Marcelo Álvarez and Evgeny Nikitin. The director is Philipp Himmelmann.
