Pasolini’s Tosca

Pasolini’s Tosca

Munich’s new production of Puccini’s shocker is set in 1975 in Rome where Pier Paolo Pasolini is filming ‘The 120 Days of Sodom’.

The Hungarian director Kornél Mundruczó opens his interpretation with fascist soldiers leading naked victims onto the stage.

Eleonora Buratto sings the title role, Charles Castronovo is Cavaradossi, Ludovic Tézier steals the show as Scarpia.
