Alagnas quit Tosca over alleged obscenityNews
The tenor Roberto Alagna and his soprano wife Aleksandra Kurzak have pulled out of next January’s Tosca in Barcelona, declaring the production ‘obscene’.
The staging, by Raffael R. Villalobos, previously seen in Brussels and Montepellier, makes the Catholic church the villain of the piece.
The Alagnas ‘felt that they were unable to play their roles in this production and ultimately decided to give up on the project.’
Good for them.
