On Sunday, March 4, the Bay Area’s Classical KDFC will broadcast a San Francisco Opera performance from November 2014 of Giacomo Puccini’s “Tosca”

The broadcast stars soprano Lianna Haroutounian in the title role, tenor Brian Jagde as Cavaradossi, and bass-baritone Mark Delavan as Scarpia, with maestro Riccardo Frizza leading the San Francisco Opera Orchestra.

KDFC radio announcer Dianne Nicolini will host the archival broadcast presentation, which will be available for on-demand streaming at up to four weeks after the broadcast.

The production, which will be broadcast, represented Haroutounian’s SF Opera debut season and since then she has triumphed in San Francisco as Cio-Cio-San in Puccini’s “Madama Butterfly.” Jagde has become a mainstay in San Francisco where he has garnered rave reviews. He reprises his Cavaradossi in a new production of “Tosca” next season.

The San Francisco Opera is currently on hiatus. It will begin its summer season in June when it presents Wagner’s Rong Cycle with Evelyn Herlitzius and Falk Struckman in the lead roles.
