Tosca Puccini Opera Poster
One of the greatest Tosca images ever!Puccini was a perfectionist! He set high standards for himself and everyone else involved in his operas. He worked tirelessly with the sopranos who play his heroines. Puccini subjected others to stern discipline. 'Sometimes he would make me so angry I wanted to cry' Jeritza recalled. 'Then he would get angry. 'Jeritza,' he would say, 'if ever I wake you at three in the morning and ask you to sing a high C, you will sing a high C.'
