Tosca is one of the most popular pieces composed by Giacomo Puccini. Since its premiere in 1900 it has been enrapturing music lovers all over the world. The opera is very dynamic, both its plot and music are energetic and diversified. The composer used leitmotifs, in accordance with Richard Wagner’s idea (there were over 60 composed especially for Tosca). Tosca is an opera composed in verismo style, hence there are many realistic, even brutal scenes here, which can be rarely seen in operas of bel canto.
Three noted singers will sing the title role in the latest production of the Grand Theater Łódź: Monika Cichocka and Ewa Vesin. The role of Cavaradossi will be sang by Sylwester Kostecki, Tomasz Kuk, Dominik Sutowicz and Paweł Skałuba and the role of baron Scarpia will be sang by Aleksander Teliga and Adam Szerszeń.

One of the greatest operas of all time La Traviata, had its premiere 160 years ago in Teatro La Fenice (on the 6th of March 1853). In order to celebrate its anniversary and the Year of Verdi, we would like to present this piece to our audience.
Verdi composed La Traviata during the so-called "middle period" of his career. His contemporaries asked him once, which of his operas he believes to be his greatest achievement. He said that, as a composer, he would have to choose Rigoletto, but as a layman – La Traviata. It is not surprising, since it was Verdi’s dream to create a realist and contemporary opera. La Traviata is in fact the only contemporary opera created by Verdi. All the other pieces he created, depicted the human drama in historical setting. La Traviata is perceived today as a very "juicy" real-life opera with arias, ensembles, which today, 200 years after Verdi’s birth, are widely popular as separate pieces.
