Turandot from the Arena di Verona: Franco Zeffirelli's legendary production of a Puccini masterpiece.

For its 88th edition, the prestigious Arena di Verona Festival honored internationally acclaimed Italian stage director Franco Zeffirelli. Zeffirelli delivers an opulent staging of the fairy-tale story of the Chinese Princess Turandot, who will only marry a prince capable of solving her riddles.

The Russian soprano Maria Guleghina proved a brilliant Turandot. Salvatore Licitra's trump card is his imposingly radiant tenor voice of which he remains in sovereign control even in the role's much-feared highest register. The soprano Tamar Iveri is a beautiful and sensitive Liù.

The Orchestra and Chorus of the Arena di Verona are conducted by Maestro Giuliano Carella.
