Now the new date has been set. Puccini's Tosca, originally scheduled for last Tuesday (August 1), will be performed on Wednesday, September 20 at 7:30 pm in the Naumburg Bandshell (mid-park just south of the 72nd Street transverse). Lucianna La Monaco, Gustavo L‹pez Manzitti and Raemond Martin star as Tosca, Cavaradossi and Scarpia (respectively); NYGO founder Vincent La Selva conducts.
The New York Grand Opera generally performs two or three fully-staged productions each summer in the Naumburg Bandshell, with free admission. Also planned, for this month, is a double-bill of Puccini's Suor Angelica and Leoncavallo's I pagliacci at 7:30 pm on Friday, August 25. Information is available at www.newyorkgrandopera.org.
