Now there's a reason to see Tosca twice (if Puccini's beautiful music wasn't reason enough). Alternating with Adrianne Pieczonka and Carlo Ventre as the doomed lovers are soprano Julie Makerov, last seen at the COC as Senta in The Flying Dutchman, and tenor Brandon Jovanovich, who recently sang the roles of Froh and Siegmund in the San Francisco Opera's Ring Cycle.
In this interview with the Toronto Star, Makerov tells the story of a Tosca-related wardrobe malfunction and says of Tosca that “She is an enigma. She is an idealist in every sense of the word.”
These photos show Makerov and Jovanovich in action. We're sure you'll want to see them for yourself!
