Giacomo Puccini: Tosca

Set in the grit and glamour of late 1960s Rome, Stephen Barlow’s acclaimed 2008 production of Tosca returns to Opera Holland Park for the centenary of Puccini’s death. With the city in his grip, Scarpia meets his match with the diva Floria Tosca, who must try to prevent the execution of her lover, Mario Cavaradossi, an artist opposed to Scarpia’s politics. Taut and terrifying, Puccini’s drama contains some of his most impassioned and original music for voice and orchestra.

South African soprano Amanda Echalaz returns to the role and staging that launched her international career, having since played Floria Tosca in Berlin, Dresden, Santa Fe, Salzburg, Strasbourg, Sydney and New York. Portuguese tenor José de Eça makes his company debut as Mario Cavaradossi. Matthew Kofi Waldren conducts in his fourteenth engagement with the company since he joined the inaugural cohort of Opera Holland Park Young Artists.

Gioachino Rossini: The Barber of Seville

A sparkling comedy of intrigue told with style and panache. Figaro the barber turns puppet-master as he tries to prevent Rosina’s wedding to her elderly guardian, Doctor Bartolo, and instead cement a match between her and the young Count Almaviva, Figaro’s former and future employer. Disguises and deceptions abound as the course of true love hits the rocks. With brilliantly inventive arias and ensembles that fizz at lightning speed, Rossini’s opera serves as a tart prequel to Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro.

Paul Grant takes the title role in Cecilia Stinton’s new production of this classic bel canto comedy, conducted by Charlotte Corderoy. Elgan Llŷr Thomas and Heather Lowe play Almaviva and Rosina, with Stephen Gadd as the conniving Doctor Bartolo. There is luxury casting in the supporting cast, as operatic superstar and celebrated comedienne Janis Kelly makes her company debut in the role of Bartolo’s dust-allergic housekeeper, Berta.
