From the Met's web site:
Luc Bondy’s dramatic new production returns, with Sondra Radvanovsky singing the title role for the first time at the Met. Also starring Violeta Urmana, Marcelo Álvarez, Salvatore Licitra, Falk Struckmann, and James Morris.
A co-production of the Metropolitan Opera, Teatro alla Scala, Milan, and Bayerische Staatsoper, Munich.
From a review of the January 10 performance by Steve Smith in the New York Times:
Ms. Radvanovsky rose to the challenge of her first Met Tosca. As ever, her sound was idiosyncratic and personal, and her characterization was more kittenish than fiery and jealous during a first act that lumbered and flailed at times.
But in Act II Ms. Radvanovsky found credible ways to carry out Mr. Bondy’s unorthodox notions while remaining true to character. Her “Vissi d’Arte,” passionate and finely controlled, was a showstopper. Here and in the final act Ms. Radvanovsky was at her inspiring best, and you sensed that hers was an interpretation that could yield still greater thrills as the run settles.
