This February, The Royal Opera’s Tosca returns to Covent Garden. Jonathan Kent’s staging receives its 14th revival since its premiere in 2006 and this year will showcase debut performances from several artists new to the Royal Opera House stage.   

The Spring run will be conducted by Karen Kamensek, who makes her Covent Garden debut, having performed extensively with Los Angeles Philharmonic, English National Opera, the London Philharmonic Orchestra, The Metropolitan Opera New York, and many others. 

Soprano Ausrine Stundyte performs the role of Floria Tosca, following her stand-out performance covering Nina Stemme in the title role in Elektra last night. This follows her acclaimed performances at the Salzburg Festival, Festival d’Aix-en-Provence, Bayerische Staatsoper, and elsewhere across Europe. Marcelo Puente will perform the role of Mario Cavaradossi, with Gabriele Viviani as Baron Scarpia, Didier Pieri as Spoletta, and Grisha Martirosyan as Cesare Angelotti.  

The Summer performances of Tosca will be conducted by Andrea Battistoni, who will conduct the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House for the first time. The Royal Opera welcomes the return of Angel Blue, who will perform the role of Floria Tosca (1, 3, 5, 8, 11, 13, 16, 19 July), alongside Russell Thomas as Mario Cavaradossi. She shares the role of Tosca with Sonya Yoncheva, who will perform on 14, 17 and 21 July, alongside Yusif Eyvazov as Mario Cavaradossi. Ludovic Tézier and Aleksei Isaev share the role of Baron Scarpia, Spoletta is performed by Colin Judson, Hubert Francis and Hugh Francis, and Cesare Angelotti by Christian Federici and Germán E. Alcántara.  

Tosca will be performed at the Royal Opera House between 5 and 24 February, and again from 1 to 21 July 2024. Tickets are available from the Royal Opera House website.
