Puccini's fast-moving operatic thriller, "Tosca", tells the passionate, yet tragic, tale of a celebrated diva. When her lover, an idealistic artist, gets tangled up in political troubles and is pursued by the corrupt chief of police, Floria Tosca prepares to do whatever it takes to save her beloved. This tragic romance ranks among the most popular operas ever, and the world's greatest divas aspire to take on this role. During the Met's October performances, Placido Domingo will conduct and charismatic sopranos Oksana Dyka and Angela Gheorghiu will rotate in the role of Puccini's eternal diva, Tosca, opposite tenor and champion of the Italian verismo style, Roberto Aronica as her lover, the artist and revolutionary Cavaradossi. Aronica performs one of the most beautiful arias in the operatic repertoire, "E lucevan le stelle," sung by the doomed Cavaradossi as he awaits execution. With its themes of political intrigue, sexual intimidation and hypocrisy in high places, Puccini's great masterpiece rings true today through its powerfully dramatic and gorgeous music. [less-]

The grandest of grand operas, Giuseppe Verdi's "Aida" strikes a brilliant balance of spectacular pageantry and emotional intimacy. Composed at the request of the King of Egypt for the opening of the Suez Canal in 1871, the opera tells the tragic tale of a love triangle in which an enslaved Ethiopian princess' love for the military leader Radames is doomed by his selection as the future groom of the Pharaoh's daughter. Nicola Luisotti and Plácido Domingo conduct, while commanding singers -- Anna Netrebko, Anita Rachvelishvili, Sondra Radvanovsky, Dolora Zajick, Aleksandrs Antonenko and Yonghoon Lee -- perform on stage. "Aida" is sung in Italian with Met titles in English, German, Italian and Spanish. [less-]

Puccini's story of love, loss and the artistic world of 19th-century Paris comes to vibrant life in this stunning production at New York's Metropolitan Opera House. Featuring strikingly designed sets and costumes, not to mention an exciting cast of singers, "La Bohème" finds the poor poet Rodolfo and the painter Marcello drawn into a tangle of love and jealousy after the frail Mimi knocks on their door. These youthful dreamers navigate the complicated maze of romance amid the colorful Bohemian enclaves of the city and its snowy streets, until they realize they can no longer hide from the world's harsh realities. The cast features Nicole Car (in her Met debut), Ailyn Pérez, Vittorio Grigolo, Michael Fabiano, Angel Blue, Etienne Dupuis and Simone Piazzola. A huge hit when Puccini premiered it in 1896, the opera's popularity and power hasn't dimmed since. [less-]
