Maverick Australian stage director Graeme Murphy brings Puccini's final opera to life in the theater with suitably majestic grandeur in this tale concerning the merciless Princess Turandot and her sadistic quest to find a fitting suitor. With an eye-popping visit to the Forbidden City, an unforgettable score by Puccini, and exquisite performances by Ealynn Voss, Kenneth Collins, and Amanda Thane, this 1991 performance captured live at the Victorian Arts Centre brings the magic of the theater directly into the viewer's living room. Conductor Carlo Felice Cillario leads the Australian Opera Chorus and the State Orchestra of Victoria.
