The Arena di Verona Festival honors Italian stage director Franco Zeffirelli, and his legendary production of Turandot.
Interpreted within the sumptuous surroundings of Verona Arena, this Puccini masterpiece tells the story of a princess whose beauty was only comparable to her cruelty. She will only marry a prince capable of solving her riddles, but if he fails, he will be beheaded...
For this edition, the lyrical festival invites russian soprano Maria Guleghina who proved a brilliant Turandot. She took to the stage with Salvatore Licitra, possessing a radiant, beautifully controlled tenor voice, and soprano Tamar Iveri as a beautiful and sensitive Liù.
