Los Angeles Opera’s final production of the year, Puccini’s Tosca, opens this Saturday. Sondra Radvanovsky sings the title role, joined by Marco Berti as Cavaradossi and Lado Ataneli as uber-villain, Scarpia. Plácido Domingo, LA Opera’s own resident impressario-cum-tenor-cum-baritone-cum-conductor, wields the baton for all performances but one.
The final dress rehearsal will be tonight, and once again, I’ll be commenting on the action live — 140 characters at a time. Participating in the craziness for the first time will be violinist, blogger, and friend of All is Yar: Fiona Bryan, AKA @banteringblonde.
I invite you to follow along with the collective banter at “#LAOTosca” or simply click HERE to be taken directly there. It all starts around 7:15 Pacific Daylight Time. Hope that you’ll join us.
