Turandot

Opera in three acts
Music: Giacomo Puccini
Libretto: Giuseppe Adami and Renato Simoni
Premiere: Milan, 1926

Running time: About 2.5 hrs
Sung in Italian with English translations projected above the stage

Ancient Peking is the backdrop for the myth of the beautiful, bloodthirsty, Princess Turandot. Resolved to never let any man possess her, she decrees that any suitor must answer three riddles or die. Puccini’s final opera is also his most musically adventurous.

Starring

LISE LINDSTROM, Turandot
Lindstrom is cool and imperious as the callous queen-to-be, but her voice is warm, rich and lustrous (never shrill) with an evenness of tone. Turandot is known as one of the hardest roles in the dramatic soprano repertoire, but Lindstrom never falters, particularly in her all-over-the-scales second-act aria “In Questa Reggia.”

OTHALIE GRAHAM, Turandot
[As Turandot] timbre and power were thrilling – steely ring from top to bottom – and her path from imperiousness to passion was convincing.

DONATA D’ANNUZIO LOMBARDI, Liu
Lombardi’s sweet, expressive, technically flawless control of the material, and her expertly measured mastery of the stage.

RUDY PARK, Calaf
Rudy Park, Korean tenor of Italian formation, has …so ample a sound that it seems amplified, manly with a warm color in the center, and his “Corelli like” emission focuses acute luminosity and power…a “Great” voice with a perfect control of the impressive instrument.

GIANCARLO MONSALVE, Calaf
The young tenor is a perfect performer, dark timbre tenor with melting Italianness, Top absolutely safe and unbelievably smoothly-lyrical in the more subdued moments.

RICARDO LUGO, Timur
Lugo … lends the storyteller Alfieri both his resonant voice and commanding stage presence. When he describes Eddie’s eyes as resembling two dark tunnels, the hairs on one’s arms stand at attention.
