‘Tosca’ at San Diego Opera

This February, Massimo Zanetti returns to San Diego Opera to lead performances of Puccini's eternal classic, 'Tosca.'

Zanetti received critical acclaim for his 2014 debut with the company, where he conducted Verdi’s Un ballo in maschera:

“Massimo Zanetti tied all of these threads together from the pit and in doing so shone as the brightest star of the evening . . . Zanetti shaped, pushed and pulled, all while weaving together the musical fabric of the score which comprises so many colorful sonorities. It was a vision of the piece that was surprising in its inventiveness, but seemed dramatically organic. The clarity he brought to the ensemble, both vocally and instrumentally, betrayed a musically assured mind, intimately familiar with the score.” (ConcertoNet.com)

San Diego Opera’s Tosca features a thrilling international cast, including Alexia Voulgaridou in the title role, Gwyn Hughes Jones as Cavaradossi, and Greer Grimsley as Scarpia, in a staging directed by Lesley Koenig. Performances take place February 13, 16, 19 & 21 at the San Diego Civic Theater.
