“The small cast of singers was highly experienced in their roles, and it showed. Soprano Jennifer Rowley needed the experience for the difficult title role. In Act One, Rowley portrayed Tosca as an immature, insecure woman full of petty jealousy. The character changes in Act Two to a woman of inner strength and decisive action. Rowley delivered the opera’s best-known aria, “Vissi d’arte,” in which a new depth of humanity emerged for the character. Rowley’s gleaming voice and her vocal range made the aria the hit of the evening for the audience”.
