Giacomo Puccini’s opera Tosca will take on a whole new look on Thursday 22 January with an avant-garde production at the Urban Center in a multimedia mini-format.
The concert will combine Italian operatic tradition with the very latest visual arts developments, using 3D projected backdrops and piano accompaniment. The intention is to create a wholistic experience to awake passions and lead to new creative horizons, say the producers, Lirica3D. The intention is to appeal to an audience unfamiliar with traditional performances of classicalmusic and opera.
Soprano Yevgenya Kimiagar will play the tragic role of Floria Tosca, while tenor Ramtin Ghazavi will play her partner, artist Mario Cavaradossi in Puccini’s masterpiece, set in Rome in 1800. The villian, police chief Baron Scarpia, will be played by baritone Giorgio Valerio. Claudia Vanzini will provide the piano accompaniment.
The opera, starting at 18.30, will be free for the first 80 confirmations, offered by the charity NGO Fratelli di S. Francesco di Assisi.
