Salzburg Easter Festival – Tosca

In a broadcast at 8.15 pm on Saturday March 31, 2018, the 3sat television channel will transmit for the first time the premiere of Puccini’s “TOSCA”, recorded in the Great Festival Hall in Salzburg on March 24, 2018.

3sat will follow this at 10.25 pm on March 31, 2018 by a repeat of the portrait of Kammersängerin Anja Harteros, entitled “Wie ein lichter Fluss” (like a bright river). This marks the first time in her musical career that the exceptional, yet media-shy artist has allowed the public a glimpse into her everyday life. She speaks candidly about the sacrifices she has had to make for her career as a singer and the pressure she experiences as a high-profile soloist.

The film accompanies Anja Harteros from the new production of “Arabella”, in which she sings the title role under the direction of film director Andreas Dresen, through the rehearsals and her role debut as Amelia in “Un ballo in maschera” to a recital of arias she gave in Budapest.
