A “glorious” Tosca at the COC

News

“Adrianne Pieczonka, who has sung the role all over the world, and was Tosca here in 2012, was glorious, with a fine, nuanced soprano that could overpower when necessary, or modulate down to a more moderate size, as she did with aplomb in her famous act-two aria, Vissi d’arte… Pieczonka’s vocal performance was very complex and layered.” (Globe & Mail, 1 May 2017)

“Adrianne Pieczonka is as perfect a Tosca as one could ever hope for. She sings the role with a full, round sound – her voice spinning with focused resonance, allowing it to fill the entire theatre. Pieczonka sings with such ease, her voice expressing everything from delicate devotion in her Act I “Non la sospiri, la nostra casetta”, to the outbursts of desperation in her brilliantly performed, “Vissi d’arte”.” (Broadway World Toronto, 2 May 2017)
