Editorial Review

NCM Fathom presents an encore presentation of Puccini's Tosca in select theatres nationwide. The encore presentation (captured live on October 10, 2009) will be shown for one day only on Wednesday, October 28, 2009 at 6:30 PM in all time zones. "Tosca combines Puccini's glorious musical inspiration with the melodramatic vitality of one of the great Hitchcock films," says Met Music Director James Levine, who conducts this new production. The opera tells the story of three people-a famous opera singer, a free-thinking painter, and a sadistic chief of police-caught in a net of love and politics.
