‘Tosca’ at the Olympia Theater

Yet another premiere of Puccini’s popular opera «Tosca» by the National Opera has created a marvelous feeling of anticipation among fans of the genre. Last night at the Olympia Theater, the chairman of the opera’s board, Odysseas Kyriakopoulos, and the opera’s artistic director Giovanni Pacor were present when the curtain went up. Official guests were shown to their seats in the presidential box by Maria Karanagnosti. In the interval and after the performance, the foyer was abuzz with members of the audience exchanging impressions. (Seats can be booked by calling 210.361.2461, or, for National Opera subscribers, 210.362.3404.)
