Puccini - Turandot


Following Anthony Minghella’s Olivier Award-winning Madam Butterfly and Jonathan Miller’s 1930s-style La bohème, ENO continues to renew its core Puccini repertoire with a new production of the composer’s operatic swansong. Directed by dynamic young theatre director Rupert Goold — fresh from his multi-award-winning Macbeth and record-breaking West End run of Oliver! — this darkly beautiful staging promises to be a Turandot for our times. German soprano Kirsten Blanck makes her UK stage debut as the man-hating ‘ice princess’; Welsh tenor Gwyn Hughes Jones (Pinkerton in Minghella’s Butterfly) makes his role debut as the unknown prince whose death-defying passion solves the riddle of her tortured heart. Featuring the aria Nessun Dorma, Puccini’s most iridescently exotic score is conducted by ENO’s Olivier Award-winning Music Director, Edward Gardner.
