Greek soprano Alexia Voulgaridou makes a heartrending local debut as Floria Tosca, the Roman opera singer whose romantic jealousy has tragic consequences for all. She’s flighty, feminine and playful with her lover, painter Mario Cavaradossi, but she flashes with fury and sings both plaintively and almost convulsively from the soul inthe famous aria “Vissi d’arte.”

Greek soprano Alexia Voulgaridou, making her company debut, brings gorgeous, effortless tone to the role of Tosca. Her voice is smooth, creamy, crystalline at the top and rich at the bottom. Her acting is impressive, too, though there are a few melodramatic moments, and her final, fatal leap is surprisingly under-played. But her amorousness, her playfulness, her quick–fire jealousy and anger and her third-act anguish are completely credible.
