Musically there is more to argue with. There are many DVD Toscas available, and this one is a notch below the best of them.Read more ›
The cast led by Fiorenza Cedolins and Marcelo Alvarez give good performances bringing the characters of Floria and Mario to life. I have only heard Alvarez a handful of times and in this recording he is the best I have heard him. I have never heard Cedolins sing before and while good enough, Alvarez is a notch above her. Recondita armonia, Non la sospiri, la nostra casetta, Vissi d'arte and E lucevan le stelle are the highlights as you would expect but I really enjoyed O dolci mani
There is no problem with the sound quality either stereo or 5.1, both sounded fine to me. The quality of the blu-ray is also good and for less than £7 I cannot imagine you getting a better value Tosca anywhere especially when the DVD version of this performance is being sold for £25 elsewhere.
If you are looking for a better Tosca then you should track down a copy of the 1978 Met recording staring Luciano Pavarotti, Shirley Verrett and Cornell Macneil. Unfortunately not available on Amazon UK but like several othe Opera DVD's it is available from amazon.fr which is where I ordered my copy from. You can login with yor UK username and password and all your address and card details appear just the same as the UK. Even if you are a Prime customer you will have to pay shipping of around 7 Euro's. My total bill was for about 20 Euro's.
The venue at Verona is spectacular with everything being presented on a large scale. This produces a situation of swings and roundabouts. The voices can get somewhat submerged, but not inaudible, at the big moments - and there are many. However, with the aid of the subtitles, it is easy enough to precisely follow the words being sung without any guesswork.
At the same time there is also conveyed a degree of required effort which I personally find appropriate to the scale of the drama being portrayed. The crucial death of Scarpia must equally be conveyed with an overwhelming passion and hatred and in this respect we are fully catered for. Several otherwise fine performances fall at this hurdle. The singers here are all up to the task vocally and as actors. The orchestra are well recorded especially when considering the demands of the venue.
As a recording this succeeds in creating the sense of considerable spectacle and the imaging is as crisp and as involving as one could reasonably expect from such a setting and venue. The sound is equally praise-worthy and is presented in DTS 5.1 and stereo options.
This is a red-blooded Tosca writ large. Tosca is all about passion, larger than life characters and events supported by music conceived on a large scale. That, for me, is what we get here and I for one, am very satisfied. Highly recommended especially as it is now available at a much reduced price.

It's Tosca - what more can I say ? Go for it ! Thoroughly enjoyed the performers and the performance. Much enhanced of course by the Blu-Ray experience.Published on 19 Dec. 2012 by Garwood Yardley
This is an enthralling performance recorded in the open air on a warm summer evening. Fiorenza Cedolins can act, sing, move comfortably in dresses with enormous trains. Read morePublished on 23 July 2012 by Wessex Man
