Patricia Racette portrays the tempestuous diva Floria Tosca in Luc Bondy's production of Giacomo Puccini's enduring favorite. Roberto Alagna sings Tosca's lover, the painter Cavaradossi, and George Gagnidze is the corrupt, lustful Scarpia. Riccardo Frizza conducts Puccini's sweeping, dramatic tale of murder, lust, and political intrigue.
