The mythical Princess Turandot rules her people with an iron fist and a heart of ice. Can Prince Calaf melt her heart, when so many have failed? And what price will he pay?
Puccini’s masterpiece is back with a starry international cast for this classic production. Director Graeme Murphy and designer Kristian Fredrikson’s bold choreography and larger-than-life sets and costumes balance Puccini’s gorgeous swathes of orchestral and choral colour to produce a spectacular night in the theatre.
Hear Susan Foster sing Turandot’s spine-tingling ‘In questa reggia’, Hyeseoung Kwon sing the heart-rending ‘Signore, ascolta!’ and rising star Carlo Barricelli sing that great anthem, ‘Nessun dorma’.
This is romantic opera at its intoxicating best.
