Narodowa Opera we Lwowie, 22/27/28.11.2020
Opera in 3 acts
Libretto by Giuseppe Adamie and Renato Simoni
Dedicating to the 120thanniversary of the theatre, Lviv National Opera presents the opera “Turandot” by Giacomo Puccini, staged for the first time in our theatre.
The emotional and soft music of the famous Italian composer reflects dramatic feelings of the main characters: cold and aloof Chinese princess Turandot, enamoured Prince Calaf and gentle and humble slave girl Liu.
Colourful set design brings the audience to ancient China, when the Great Wall of China was built and the legendary terracotta army was created to protect the empire both in the real and unreal worlds. However, sacrificial death in the name of love can touch even ancient stone.
Legend, illusoriness and reality are implemented in the opera “Turandot”, staged by Polish director Michal Znaniecki, conductor Ivan Cherednichenko and Italian set designer Luigi Scoglio.
