“Fans of [Guleghina] will be delighted: she is in ample, imperious voice with a dramatic Slav vibrancy to it . . . Muti employs much subtly molded rubato and the orchestra often responds with very beautiful playing.” — Gramophone

Riccardo Muti and his longtime musical partners at La Scala present Puccini’s Tosca. Arguably his most popular work, Tosca enjoys regular performances around the world with star-studded casts, much like the performance heard here. Recorded live in 2000.
