The Metropolitan Opera Live 19/20: Turandot
New York comes to WGC, the first of the season.
Saturday nights will never be the same again!
Starring: Christine Goerke, Nina Stemme
Conductor: Yannick Nézet-Séguin
Approx running time: 3 hours
Puccini’s final opera is an epic fairy tale set in a China of legend, loosely based on a play by 18th-century Italian dramatist Carlo Gozzi. Featuring a most unusual score with an astounding and innovative use of chorus and orchestra, it is still recognizably Puccini, bursting with instantly appealing melody. The unenviable task of completing the opera’s final scene upon Puccini’s sudden death was left to the composer Franco Alfano. Conductor Arturo Toscanini oversaw Alfano’s contribution and led the world premiere.
