The first production that the company will showcase online is a production of Puccini’s “Tosca.” The opera is staged in a new production by Barrie Kosky with Lorenzo Viotti conducting the Netherlands Philharmonic. The cast includes superstar soprano Malin Byström in the title role alongside Joshua Guerrero and Gevorg Hakobyan.

Patrick Hahn conducts the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra with a cast that includes Johanni van Oostrum, Ying Fang, Benjamin Bruns, Günther Groissböck and Odin Lund Biron as “The Red One.”
