A new production of Puccini’s Tosca opens this week at Lyric Opera of Chicago, with three singers making their company debuts in the leading roles: Tatiana Serjan as Tosca, Brian Jagde as Cavaradossi, and Evgeny Nikitin as Scarpia.

“Tosca, an impulsive opera star,” says Lyric, “is in love with a rebel artist – but he is hunted by a villainous police chief who will stop at nothing to capture his prey. What price is too high to save the man you love?” The description goes on to cite “this heartbreaking story with achingly beautiful music.”

Suzanne Nance and Lyric’s Roger Pines co-host WFMT’s live opening-night broadcast.
