Hawai’i Grand Opera: Tosca With a Tongan Flair
Hawai’i Opera Theatre is launching a new production of one of opera’s most thrilling treasures: Puccini’s Tosca. HPR’s Noe Tanigawa goes behind the scenes for a look at why this production promises to be a blockbuster.
“Tosca” opens this Friday night at 8, with a matinee Sunday and final performance Tuesday night, April 30. Performances are all at the Blaisdell Concert Hall.
HPR Music Director, Gene Schiller, says it's been a long time since he's heard a voice of Pupu'a's caliber.
