Meet Julie Makerov and Brandon Jovanovich

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!

That article about Julie and Adrianne as Tosca was hilarious. I'd love to have seen that production where the extras followed Tosca over the edge because they din't know what they were supposed to be doing. Too funny.
