For the first time, the Wrocław Opera House was filled with such emotions at the end of each act, and for the first time the opera house was filled with a wave of warmth, admiration, delight, and the will to endlessly express gratitude for what we heard and saw.
The world at the Wrocław Opera House.
Lianna Haroutounian has been involved in the title role of G. Puccini’s „TOSCA“ , so that she would grace the interiors of a baroque church designed by Gary McCann, so that she would proudly wear costumes carefully designed by Gary McCann, so that she would proudly endure the masterful manipulations of Ambrogio Maestri in the role of Baron Scarpia.

Love and lust, desire for another person for love and degradation, inflicting suffering and mental and physical pain, enslavement to gain physical love of a woman, to gain control over another person, to deprive him of love and dignity. These are the main characters of this work.
Power expressed by symbols, figures of characters walking around in a very realistically and tastefully realized set design, located on a rotating stage, giving the possibility of spatial location of the action of the human drama. The scenes interpenetrated one another, giving a sense of the mystery of life.
Two dominant personalities: Floria Tosca and Baron Scarpia caught my attention, the fight for the freedom of beloved Mario Cavaradossi – in this role Giorgi Sturua, the challenge for the prize of male egoism, and all this expressed in singing from the greatest opera scenes, which this time resonated with the Wrocław orchestra under the baton of Bassem Akiki – Music Director of the Wrocław theatre.

The sophisticated rendition of „TOSCA“ and the music played by the orchestra under the baton of Bassem Akiki made us stand up for a very long ovation, which seemed not to end, and although it was not directed by Michael Gielet, it became an integral part of this work.
„TOSCA“ gave meaning to our lives.
