|Patricia Racette as Tosca|
Puccini's masterpiece Tosca has always been famous in the operatic circle, and it remains so till this very day. On November 15, Angela Gheorghiu premiered in SF Opera's production of Tosca, but only sang the first act. Unfortunately, she suffered an intestines flu, and the doctor said that she was dehydrated. David Gockley, general director at the War Memorial Opera House, came out during the intermission in between the first act and the second act and announced that Ms. Gheorghiu will not continue singing, and that she is now rushed to the hospital. Melody Moore, Angela Gheorghiu's cover, sang the rest of the performance. We all hope that Ms. Gheorghiu gets better soon.
