Turandot: Riveting & beautiful

By Le Petite
Written February 02, 2016
This long-awaited production met with brilliance every expectation. Maria Guleghina was electrifying in the title role, with palpable emotions as the plot unfolded. The cast was so rich, so graceful, so integrated. There is no way to rehearse out the variables that can go into a production this grand, this detailed, this elaborate; rather, dead-on casting and a depth of talent supports & carries the production. The music was exquisite, extracting emotion from the audience. Bravo! I am seeing the encore as well.

They don't get any better or more spectacular than this. If you don't like this Turandot then you just are never going to be a fan of opera.

Another wonderful Zeffirelli production - beautiful costumes, impressive sets - a feast for the eyes. Also, the intermission interviews are always interesting. And since some of the intermissions are very long, I very much appreciate that the cameras keep rolling and showing how the sets are assembled and what goes on on the stage behind the curtain.
