Once denounced as Puccini’s “shabby little shocker,” Tosca today is revered as one of the most popular operas of all time and an acknowledged masterpiece of music drama. Patricia Racette, Savatore Licitra and Bryn Terfel star in Puccini’s Tosca on July 30 in the Ravinia pavilion. (Supertitles will be available for this performance.) Also see Bryn Terfel also perform in the Martin Theatre on August 2 with Brian Zeger on piano. The Washington Post said of Terfel, "At this point in Terfel's career, every performance is a master class in singing and stagecraft."
