WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Broadcasts directly from the National Theatre, Royal Opera House and other famous theatres around the world onto a big screen. Most broadcasts are of live performances but "Encore" screenings of previous famous productions are also given.
Puccini's musically sublime final opera Turandot is a tale of disguised identities, riddles, ritual executions and powerful, triumphant love. Andrei Serban's production of this dark Oriental fairytale is spectacular, with magnificent sets and elaborate masks and costumes, inspired by traditional Chinese theatre. One of the greatest Turandot singers today, Lise Lindstrom, makes her Royal Opera Debut, with Marco Berti in the role of Prince Calaf.
