Excellent Tosca!
27 August 2001 | by hgbrown2000See all my reviews

Having lived in NYC during the days of the Golden Met with it's history and great voices, sets, and the excitement of opera for opera lovers, I was thrilled when viewing this taping of Beheren's Tosca. I had the thrill of seeing Price make her debut on the stage of the old Met with Zefferelli's sets and designs, and believe me, the sets for this Tosca by him are no less stunning and exciting. Particular attention is given to the Te Deum in the Church scene, as the crowd builds, the incense, and banners, all create a massive look, that is equalled by some pretty massive singing! Berhens is great! But, it is difficult not to recall those I have seen in this role, Nilsson, Callas, Price, to name a few. This tape is a must for opera lovers.
