CINÉSPECTACLE: TOSCA (STF)

Duration / 2h10
Entracte / 1

Opera Giacomo Puccini
Musical direction Lorenzo Viotti
Stage direction Barrie Kosky
Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra
Chorus of Dutch National Opera
Nieuw Amsterdams Kinderkoor

Tosca is a gripping opera that is packed with chaos and danger from its opening bars. With this melodrama, written in 1900 in a provocative, bold and cinematic style, Puccini didn't just herald the 20th century - he took it by storm. Director Barrie Kosky is extremely pleased to be directing Tosca - it was the first opera he fell deeply in love with as a boy. Under his direction, the darker sides of the opera come to the fore. Far from glamorous Roman churches, rustling velvet or sparkling pearl necklaces. Kosky concentrates solely on the psychological drama. Lorenzo Viotti, who is a keen Puccini enthusiast, delivers a musically ‘sugar-free’ Tosca. He shakes off traditional interpretations of the score, approaching it with a fresh perspective.

A RADIANT GIRL (STA)
Irene is an exuberant 19-year-old aspiring actress intent on gaining a conservatoire place. Attractive and confident, she falls in and out of love, assured of her bright future. Irene’s irrepressible optimism is at odds with the reality of 1942 occupied Paris. Acclaimed actress Sandrine Kiberlain’s directorial debut feature skilfully avoids sensationalizing the looming catastrophe, focussing instead on the protagonist’s wilful denial of the incremental warning signs of what lies ahead for the Jewish population. The price of that denial is a cruel reminder of the tragedy that follows.
