Sung in Italian with English titles projected above the stage.
Opening the Winter Festival Season, two Sarasota favorites—soprano Kara Shay Thomson and tenor Rafael Dávila—will return to recreate the roles of Tosca and Cavaradossi in Puccini’s famous melodramma. The Italian master’s powerful melodies give life to this story where a famous diva’s jealousy leads to tragedy. Rafael Dávila will dazzle you with his “spectacular upper range and beautifully focused tone”* as he performs two pillars of the Italian tenor repertoire, “Recondita armonia” and “E lucevan le stelle.”
