On July 11 and 13, Bravo! Vail Music Festival embarks on its most ambitious project to date – a staged production of Puccini’s Tosca, under the musical direction of Yannick Nézet-Séguin, Music Director of the Philadelphia Orchestra and famed Metropolitan Opera house in New York City.
The Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater will be transformed under the directorial guidance of James Alexander and his innovative production company, Symphony V. For two nights, the magic of opera comes to life using modern technology, stunning artistry of an all-star vocal cast in full costume, two choirs, and the Philadelphia Orchestra.
For more than a century, Tosca has fascinated both performers and audiences, and remains one of the most frequently performed operas.
To enrich your experience with Tosca, Bravo! Vail is partnering with the Vail Symposium, a known leader for thought-provoking educational programs, to host five unique opportunities you won’t want to miss. From an immersive introduction, to a Conductor’s perspective; to meeting the Stage Director, James Alexander, and participating in two pre-concert talks, these events will give you the inside scoop on this historic opera presentation while learning from the experts just what makes Tosca tick.
