Jennifer Rowley stars in the title role of Puccini’s Tosca at the Metropolitan Opera on March 18, 23, 26, 29, and April 2 & 6. Rowley reprises this iconic verismo role, after garnering critical acclaim for her portrayal of Tosca last year at the Met in a sumptuous new production by Sir David McVicar. OperaWire praised her performance saying:
“Jennifer Rowley exuded allure from the start, purring out the third “Mario!” before her entrance in a way that spoke volumes of her relationship with Cavaradossi. Rowley molded her fiery passion to suit Tosca’s changing mood, using it at one moment to warm and in the next to burn.”
For her upcoming performances, Carlo Rizzi conducts the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra and Chorus. Ms. Rowley will share the stage with a renowned cast including Joseph Calleja as Cavaradossi, Wolfgang Koch as Scarpia, and Philip Cokorinos as Sacristan. Next season she returns to the Met to sing the role again on April 15 & 18.
