Greek National Opera – Lukas Karytinos – Hugo de Ana

by Giacomo Puccini

For another year, the Greek National Opera inaugurates the Odeon of Herodes Atticus programme, presenting one of the most beloved operas, Puccini’s Tosca, alongside internationally renowned stars.

Hugo de Ana’s Tosca (revival directed by Katerina Petsatodi) is enthralling, intense, and entirely consistent with the spirit of the composer, as well as the historical context to which the libretto refers. The impressive sets –a huge crucifix, a high altar, an atelier– are accompanied by spectacular visuals of Rome’s monuments, religious symbols, and videos that add a cinematic aspect to the production.
