Condemi's Tosca to be Screened in High-Def at Ballpark
SAN FRANCISCO, January 26, 2009 - San Francisco Opera and the San Francisco Giants will partner with Webcor Builders to bring grand opera to AT&T Park, home of the San Francisco Giants baseball team. The opening week of the Company's Summer season features a free live simulcast of Giacomo Puccini's Tosca, starring Canadian soprano Adrianne Pieczonka in the title role, on Friday, June 5, 2009 at 8 p.m.

Always an audience favorite, Puccini's Tosca brings to life a tempestuous world of cruelty and deception through the tale of an idealistic artist, a celebrated singer and a corrupt police chief engaged in a fierce battle of wills. Canadian soprano Adrianne Pieczonka makes her Company debut in the title role opposite Roberto Aronica as Cavaradossi and Lado Ataneli as the evil Scarpia. Italian conductor Marco Armiliato returns to conduct and former Adler Fellow Jose Maria Condemi directs.
