It is no exaggeration to say that the 2 performances of Tosca at the Royal Opera House in July 2011 - with Angela Gheorghiu, Jonas Kaufmann and Bryn Terfel as the leads - were opera history in the making and by far the hottest tickets in town.

 Bravo  December 18, 2012 By D. Rincon (San Antonio, TX) See All My Reviews "A well performed Tosca. Bryn Terfel steals the show though Gheorghiu's Tosca holds her ground. Kaufmann's Carvaradossi seemed to still be in development, maybe it was the night it was flimed that made it seem that way. Bryn's Scarpia was near about perfect. I was saddened by the fact that the sound during his final curtain call some how disappeared from my copy of the Blu- Ray though by manipulating my menu screen and switching the audio choices I was able to hear the thunder the crowd gave him. I wonder if this is the problem that caused EMI to pull product. (I wonder if I could trade my copy for a new one when it's available???)" Report Abuse
