Plus: Tosca: An Introduction by Antonio Pappano Jonathan Kent's atmospheric and evocative production of Tosca - which has established itself as a Royal Opera House classic - features three of today's finest singers. Angela Gheorghiu's sensitively portrayed Tosca, a character with which she closely identifies, is paired with Jonas Kaufmann's intense and compelling Cavaradossi, while Bryn Terfel is thrillingly malevolent as Scarpia. Antonio Pappano's masterfully paced conducting captures all the drama and beauty of Puccini's exhilarating opera.
