Tosca spoiler !!!



"She runs into a tower and a body double jumps out of the stage right side.

She's in a harness and the lights go out as she is suspended in mid-air.

Unfortunately, the lights took a little too long to go out, so the jump didnt make the effect it could have"

As if this was the only problem of the dress-rehearsal of Tosca at the Met...

Listen to Karita Mattila in trouble

Hello!

Wonderful news! I want to see this new Tosca production in the MET, but I have to wait until it will be transmited in HD on October 10th, but your post gave a little idea of this.

In the audio, I don't know why Mattila breaks down her voice, I hope that in the MET Opening Gala won't be like this.

Please visit my blog, maybe you'll like it. http://operanite88.blogspot.com/

Best regards!

hey there!

I've already visited your blog in the past :)

Rumour has it that Mattila was not a lot better during rehearsals but I still hope for the run of performances..
