PUCCINI, G.: Turandot (Palau de les Arts "Reina Sofia", 2009) (NTSC) 750008
PUCCINI, G.: Turandot (Palau de les Arts "Reina Sofia", 2009) (Blu-ray, Full-HD) 750104

Maria Guleghina has a powerful voice and complete command of the stage as Princess Turandot. Her scene with Alexia Voulgaridou’s vulnerable, beautiful and brave Liù is deeply moving. As the Unknown Prince who near the end reveals his identity as Calàf, Marco Berti has solid upper-register strength and little grace but sings “Nessun dorma” more smoothly than he did on last year’s Met broadcast. Alexander Tsymbalyuk is a rich-toned Timur. Fabio Previati, Vicenç Esteve and Roger Padullés are a colorful Ping, Pang and Pong. © 2016 Opera News Read complete review

Remy Franck
Pizzicato, May 2016

The major asset of this production is the opulent and colourful staging. Zubin Mehta’s conducting is very expressive and appealing, and he supports very well an overall good cast. © 2016 Pizzicato
