A strange Tosca....Bregenz 2007




This performance of Tosca took place some days ago and you can still watch it live at the Bregenz Festival till the 19th of August. This is not a typical Tosca (well, there's nothing typical about the performances in Bregenz) and i would define it as a modern, hi-tech, sexually primitive, big-brother, etherial, floating Tosca (i suppose we all know that the Bregenz stage is a floating one).
Nadja Michael - who we loved as Salome in Athens a few months ago- is singing Tosca and she seems to have left behind the mezzo-soprano repertoire
Zoran Todorovich - who we also saw as Manrico in Thessaloniki a couple of years ago- is singing Mario
Gidon Saks (who??) is singing Scarpia...

The 4 chunks below are really representative of the performance
Part 1 - Beggining, Angelotti' s entrance




Part 2 - Vissi d arte




Part 3 - Franchigia a Floria Tosca...



Part 4 - Finale

Αίσχος! Ντροπή! Στο Vissi d' arte, ο βαρύτονος ανοίγει τα πόδια της σοπράνας και αυτή αντί να του κάτσει σηκώνεται και τραγουδάει κουλτουριάρικα! Αμ δεν γίνονται έτσι οι καριέρες, αγαπούλα μου!
