For ten days, the Bregenz production of Tosca became a location for shooting the latest Bond movie, Quantum of Solace, which made it to the cinemas in November 2008. In a seven-and-a-half-minute sequence of exciting action in the Festival Opera House and on the Floating Stage, Bond discovers his adversaries for the first time, during a performance of Tosca. The Bregenz production doesn't only furnish the film with some spectacular images – Puccini's music also provides a dramatic soundtrack.
Director Marc Forster incorporates the opera on the Floating Stage into the plot in his own special way: the chase through the Festival Opera House at the end looks like an apocalyptic silent film – interspersed with striking scenes from the opera.
Forster succeeds in highlighting parallels between the plots of the movie and the opera. In both Quantum of Solace and Puccini's Tosca, revenge is the central motif. Tosca's murder of Scarpia at the end of the Bregenz sequence seems to suggest what is going to happen in the film.
"Bregenz and the Bregenz Festival will profit enormously from this film because the Bond film-makers have managed to capture perfectly on screen the unique atmosphere of the opera on the Floating Stage. The Bregenz sequence ends with perhaps one of the most beautiful gunfights that I have ever seen in a film: a perfectly choreographed, silent action movie accompanied by Puccini's dramatic music," commented a visibly impressed German journalist.
"The aria drowns out the hail of bullets"
What is true of the new style of Bond movies since Casino Royale holds true for the operas on the Bregenz Floating Stage, too – sensational effects with depth, opera action with a thrilling background.
For the film-maker and screenwriter Marc Forster, the scene that takes place in the middle of Tosca on the shore of Lake Constance was a special opportunity to give full rein to his artistic potential – which would certainly make him an excellent director for the Floating Stage. "With evident pride Forster watches a sequence in the new film, which takes place against the backdrop of a Tosca performance on the Bregenz Floating Stage,“ the latest edition of the news magazine "Der Spiegel" writes in a portrait of the director. "A fierce gun battle breaks out, but Forster only shows fragments of it, preferring to stay with the opera. The aria drowns out the hail of bullets."
"The images of the Bregenz Tosca that can be seen in Quantum of Solace are spectacular, but not only that. The plot is action-packed, but even in the midst of the fiercest gunfight Forster lets the action of the opera on the Floating Stage continue: "This artistic intent is new in the Bond film series. Action before never meant anything other than action. (…) Forster by contrast stylises the shoot-out as a fascinating ballet of death, and Bond is just one of the dancers,“ commented "Der Spiegel". http://presse.bregenzerfestspiele.net/en/bond-quantum-solace-20080520-0
