Rivaling the splendor of Franco Zeffirelli’s set and costumes of the Napoleonic era, Sir David McVicar’s ravishing new production offers a splendid backdrop for Kristine Opolais in the title role of the jealous prima donna and Vittorio Girgolo as her revolutionary artist lover Cavaradossi.
Bryn Terfel is the depraved police chief Scarpia, and Andris Nelsons conducts.
