Central Park Tosca, Cancelled Due to Heat, Now Rescheduled

Classic Arts News   Central Park Tosca, Cancelled Due to Heat, Now Rescheduled
 
The heat wave New York City suffered last week caused the New York Grand Opera, for the first time in its 33-year history, to postpone one of its free performances in Central Park.

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.
