Intense, Romantic, Great singing, Absorbing, Dated

See it if If you’re game for good melodramatics from my very favorite drama Queen. Tosca’s a lot, but in fairness, love is too. One of my favs.

Don't see it if If you don’t want intense tragedies. It takes a second to get settled and pick up in exposition. It does contain gunshots.

Must see, Great writing, Great staging, Great singing, Exquisite

See it if I'm hardly an opera expert, though I hope to get there, but this is the best opera I've ever seen. It's lovely and would be a good 1st opera

Don't see it if It's sad and long, because of COURSE it is, but unless you hate opera, this is pretty much as good as it gets.

Intense, Delightful, Absorbing

See it if you saw any previous production, the creative team did a good job with it this time around and it has a broader appeal

Don't see it if you don't like opera, it still has those melodramatic moments of this sort of work

Critic Reviews (4)

The New York Times
October 5th, 2022

"McVicar’s staging is so harmless, with just enough good taste to keep detractors at bay...Still, with the right performers bringing a sense of intimacy to its vast canvas, it feels like a success."

New York Classical Review

"The orchestra sounded superb all night, precise and colorful from moment to moment, yet the score came off unevenly...The bumpy transitions in tempo meant that some orchestral phrases scattered off in random directions."

"The maestro led the orchestra in a well-balanced performance that stayed faithful to the score unless freeing the singers to set off some vocal fireworks."

For a previous production

"Critic's Pick!...Yet starting with the opening measures, chilling orchestral chords that represent the villainous Scarpia, this performance abounded in crackling energy, sure-paced suspense, romantic reverie and thrilling singing from Radvanovsky and Jagde."
