    Puccini's Tosca presented by Boston Lyric Opera

    One minute, Cavaradossi is musing on his latest painting - and the diva Tosca, his beautiful, jealous lover. The next, he's in prison with someone's jackboot on his neck. Tosca's options? Betrayal or rape. There are no good choices. Puccini storms the darkest of subjects with music passionate and lyrical.

      "The Boston Lyric Opera (BLO) has presented a production of "Tosca" that is delightful to watch. The small cast is made up of exceptionally strong singers whose clear and characteristic voices not only do justice to the music, but also add layers of nuance to the plot. Soprano Jill Gardner returns to BLO as the titular diva, Floria Tosca, and her commanding and full voice fits the bill of the jealous, fiery heroine. Her second act aria "Vissi d'arte," arguably the most famous to come out of the opera, was brilliantly sung, and Gardner ably conveyed all the emotions wrapped in the aria without overstepping the bounds of believability."

      "No wonder the crowd, clearly hungry for this kind of shot of pure operatic adrenaline, gave the cast a sustained standing ovation. A year or two ago, ...I began writing that Boston Lyric Opera had turned an artistic corner and would (or should) become the dominant force on the operatic scene... Now, after a series of productions as strong as Tosca, that seems to be the conventional wisdom."
