Step inside the famed Royal Opera House and experience the world's finest opera! The Royal Opera House Live Cinema Season gets off to a dramatic start with the return of Puccini's musically sublime final opera Turandot—a tale of disguised identities, riddles, ritual executions and powerful, triumphant love. Princess Turandot of China has sworn an oath that no man will possess her. However, she offers her suitors a chance: if one of them can answer correctly the three riddles which she asks him, he can marry her. If not, he must die. Andrei Serban's production of this dark Oriental fairytale is spectacular, with Sally Jacobs's 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, a wonderful Puccinian singer, in the role of Prince Calaf. Official Web Site
