Teatro Cervantes - Málaga, Spain
The international cast brings together the voices of the Armenian soprano Lianna Haroutounian, in the role of Tosca; Mexican tenor Ramón Vargas , as Cavaradossi, and Lithuanian baritone Kostas Smoriginas , playing Scarpia. The opera features some of the most renowned arias, such as 'Vissi d'arte' and 'E lucevan le stelle', which will flood the Cervantes Theater next weekend along with the voices of Cristian Díaz, Fernando Latorre, Luis López and Luis Pacetti. "A very spectacular production", as Pedro Halffter points out, which will benefit from the play of lights and the Malaga Philharmonic Orchestra that will accompany the soloists together with the Malaga Opera Choir and the Pueri Cantores Malaga choir . The conductor wanted to congratulate the choir for their magnificent work and for allowing the children to enter the operatic experience. After very intense and fruitful weeks of rehearsal, the director hopes "that we will be all the strength and intensity of Puccini and be able to take it to the maximum."
