Heart-warming serenades, ridiculous costumes and futile waits for a happy ending. Gioachino Rossini’s comic opera is hilariously entertaining from the barber Figaro’s entrance “Largo al factotum”, which ends with the exclamation “Figaro!”; to Rosina’s hilarious cavatina “Una voce poco fa”!

TURANDOT

Performers: Anna Pirozzi (Turandot), Yonghoon Lee (Kalaf), Masabane Cecilia Rangwanasha (Liu), Vitalij Kowaljow (Timur), Hansung Yoo (Ping), Aled Hall (Pang), Michael Gibson (Pong)
Puccini’s score is a musical treat in itself (e.g. Kalaf’s aria ‘Nessun dorma’). But in Andrei Şerban’s staging, which draws on Chinese theatre traditions, even the colourful, fanciful tabloid of 19th-century Beijing comes to life.
