A journey of ill-suited and ill-fated lovers through the dark and secretive halls and edges of cathedrals, palaces and prisons, through Puccini’s both vibrant and mournful lyrical score. Director Linda Brovsky and Conductor Dean Williamson will carry the audience to the hauntingly beautiful hidden corners of Rome, where infatuation and devotion twist and twine in contention. Featuring Baritone Corey Crider as the iniquitous Baron Scarpia, Tenor John Pickle as the doomed Cavaradossi, and Soprano Kara Shay Thomson as the heart-rending, alluring Tosca, this story of an agonizing and devoted love loss will shatter the hearts of romantics and their cynics.
Bass-Baritone Thomas Hammons joins the cast as Sacristan, along with Tenor Torrance Blaisdell as Spoletta, and returning Intermountain Opera favorite Bass Branch Fields as Angelotti and Sciarrone. With a chorus of local singers that includes a children’s choir (appearing for the first time on the Intermountain Opera stage in nearly two decades), the company of Tosca will hold the audience into a breathtaking embrace they will feel no desire to struggle to be released.
