Met Opera in HD

Because of the coronavirus pandemic, the Metropolitan Opera announced today that the company has canceled the remainder of the 2019–20 season, including its HD offerings. To keep the worldwide opera community in high spirits, they are offering a FREE nightly broadcast on their Met Opera on Demand app. More info about these broadcasts here. To learn more, please visit our Spring 2020 FAQ page.

Anna Netrebko takes on the soaring title diva, with tenor Brian Jagde and baritone Michael Volle completing the love triangle. Bertrand de Billy conducts.

Puccini's sweeping melodrama about a volatile diva, a sadistic police chief, and an idealistic artist has offended and thrilled audiences for more than a century. Critics, for their part, have often had problems with Tosca's rather grungy subject matter (worth re-examining in the context of the #MeToo movement), the directness and intensity of its score, and the crowd-pleasing dramatic opportunities it provides for its lead roles. But these same aspects, along with a driving score of abundant melody and theatrical shrewdness, have made Tosca an iconic work that seems to represent opera in the public imagination.

This event occurred as part of the 19/20 HD Broadcast season. This is an archived view.
