Tosca - G. Puccini
"Tosca" was first performed on January 14, 1900 at the Teatro Costanzi, now the Teatro dell’Opera di Roma, symbolically on the spot. The evening was a major social event, and in addition to the Prime Minister and the Queen, the composers Pietro Mascagni and Francesco Cilea were also present. With his "Tosca" Giacomo Puccini (1858-1924) entered a new century and, with his highly theatrical and effective scenes, he committed himself to Verist opera on the one hand and to the tragic-heroic grand opera on the other. After seeing the drama of the same name by Victorien Sardous, which was a huge international success with Sarah Bernhardt in the leading role, the composer successfully applied to Sardou for the rights to create a libretto. The wealth of musical ideas (more than 60 themes appear as leitmotifs) and the breathless sequence of events are largely responsible for the immense tension and drama of the opera. By focusing on the main character, the work is considered a "prima donna opera" par excellence. Although it has always been suspected that a historical figure is behind Tosca, the characters and plot are freely invented. However, the background against which the plot unfolds is historically determined by the Second Coalition War and the Battle of Marengo in 1800 between French and Austrian troops. Napoleon’s supposed defeat and his final victory over the coalition troops are reported in the first and second act of the opera. Today "Tosca" is one of the most popular and most performed operas of all.

John Lundgren
The sinister, dramatic roles are in the hands of the warm-hearted Swede: John Lundgren (*1968) is one of THE villain actors of the opera scene and inspires with his powerful baritone and expressive stage presence. Lundgren’s career as a singer was not predetermined from the beginning. Although he discovered singing at the age of about 16 and received his first lessons from his school teacher, he first decided to train as a social worker and ran a home for hard-to-educate teenagers before devoting himself entirely to singing. He studied singing in Copenhagen while still a member of the local Royal Opera House. Numerous successful guest engagements took Lundgren to the most renowned opera houses of our time in London, Munich, Berlin, Zurich, Dresden, Hamburg and Leipzig. In 2016 he made his successful debut at the Bayreuth Festival. His role repertoire includes the parts of Scarpia (Tosca), Jack Rance (Fanciulla del West), Alberich/Wotan (The Ring of the Nibelung), Amfortas (Parsifal), Jochanaan (Salome) and Don Pizarro (Fidelio). At the side of Nina Stemme he last celebrated a brilliant success as the psychopathic Bluebeard at the Bavarian State Opera in February 2020.
