Puccini’s Tosca

My friend KE and I went to the NAC last night to see the fantastic Tosca! I wanted to see it in Rome but I couldn’t make it work unless I re-ordered my flight. After a quick dinner at le CafĂ© both of us made our way to the mezzanine. The seats were awesome and while there was a minor hiccup with one of the characters dropping out at the last minute, the performances were spectacular! Michelle Capalbo was incredible as Tosca and David Pomeroy’s Cavaradossi was equally moving. Todd Thomas as Baron Scarpia rounded out this fantastic cast! We left quite impressed! The set design was spectacular, especially Act III! The set of Castle Sant’Angelo with St.Peters in the background highlighted the religious tension that is at the heart of Puccini’s masterpiece. Bravo!
