‘’Turandot’’ from the Verone Arena : Franco Zeffirelli’s legendary production of a Puccini Masterpiece.

For his 88th edition the prestigious Verone Arena Festival honored internationally acclaimed italian stage director Franco Zeffirelli. Zeffirelli delivers an opulent staging af the fairy-tale story of the Chinese Princess Turandot, who will only marry a prince capable of solving her riddles.

The russian soprano Maria Guleghina proved a brilliant Turandot. Salvatore Licitra’s trump card is his imposingly radiant tenor voice of wich he remains in sovereign control even in the role’s much-feared highest register. The soprano Tamar Iveri is a beautiful and sensitive Liù.

The Orchestra and Chorus of the Verone Arena are conducted by Maestro Giuliano Carella.
