Full movie description "Tosca: In the Settings and at the Times of Tosca":Performed in the actual Roman settings described in the libretto. Moreover, the scenes take place at the appropriate times of day. Rome, June 1800. Floria Tosca is a celebrated opera singer, better known as La Tosca. Her lover is Mario Cavaradossi, a young artist and Bomapartist sympathizer. When the latter helps Angelotti, the leader of the opposition, to escape from prison and hides him in La Tosca's home, he antagonizes Baron Scarpia, the ruthless chief of police, all the more as his love for Tosca is unrequited.
Reviews of the Tosca: In the Settings and at the Times of ToscaI love Tosca and always have done. It has a very dark, somewhat complex and perhaps tragic story, great characters(Scarpia when performed well lives long in the memory) and superb music. I have always loved Puccini, and I feel Tosca is his magnum opus, that is subjective of course but to me it is his darkest, most complex opera. There are so many highlights, not just Recondita Armonia, Vissi D'Arte and E Lucevan Le Stelle but also the Te Deum, the climax and the beautiful and haunting music that you hear as Scarpia writes the letter/safe conduct.
As for this 1992 production, it is one of my favourite versions along with the 1976 one. It does look great, the sets are very well done and some bits of staging such as any scene between Tosca and Scarpia- the murder scene is incredibly chilling- and the te deum are truly inspired. The vidoegraphy is also interesting, with some nice close ups and frames, and the costumes are beautiful especially Tosca's dress in Act 2.
The orchestra play the music wonderfully, while the conducting I had no problem with either. The performances add a lot to how good this production is. Catherine Malfitano is an exceptional Tosca, she has a beautiful voice that projects impressively and her acting is above excellent. Placido Domingo is great as Caveradossi, while he is very poignant in Act 3 some of him in Act 2 also comes across as somewhat arrogant. Not but not least, Ruggero Raimondi as Scarpia. I cannot say enough possibly about how good he is other than saying he is one of the best Scarpias I've seen, charming sometimes yet truly sinister and Machiavellian at other points.
All in all, if you love Tosca, if you find yourself a copy of this production, I personally wouldn't miss it. 10/10 Bethany Cox
