Drawn from an ancient Persian epic from the 13th century, Turandot was indeed an excuse for Puccini, at the end of his life, to escape into a new dramatic universe, one made of unexpected sounds and symbols. Here, in a world removed both geographically and chronologically from his own reality, he gave into the seductive powers of exoticism and eroticism, just as his own heroine Princess Turandot abandons herself to the mysteries of love and forgiveness.

After 20 years of absence, Puccini’s Turandot was revived on the stage of the Teatro Real in a new production by American stage director Robert Wilson. One of the most important theatre and visual artists of our time, the director who gave life to Philip Glass’s Einstein on the Beach and who reinvented Debussy’s Pelléas et Mélisande hadn’t worked on a Puccini opera in 25 years, since his ground-breaking Madama Butterfly commissioned by the Paris Opera in 1993. This new encounter between his powerful visual universe and Puccini’s evocative music was bound to be an outstanding event. Carried out by a brilliant cast of singers, dominated by Irene Theorin as Turandot, Gregory Kunde as Calaf and Yolanda Auyanet as Liù, this magnificent production has met with universal acclaim.
