Cardinal role in Wolverhampton opera up for grabs

Steve Orme

English Touring Opera is looking for a fan to play the walk-on role of a cardinal in its new production of Puccini’s Tosca at Wolverhampton Grand Theatre.

The chosen cardinal will contribute to Puccini’s story of double-crossings, love and betrayal by leading the Te Deum procession through Rome. The cardinal does not sing. The production is directed by Blanche McIntyre and conducted by ETO’s music director, Michael Rosewell.
