Turandot Opening Night Gala Performance

Lyric's blurb for this one is "An exotic Chinese princess beckons all suitors: Answer three riddles and she is yours. Get them wrong and you die." Dramatic, no? Even more dramatic were the music by Puccini and set saturated with reds and purples. I've heard Nessun Dorma many times before, but after seeing production it makes a lot more sense. Calaf (Vladimir Galouzine)= Love :)

Act I

Vertigo, anyone?

I'm not at the senior home, honestly ... And time marches on :)

Smelling the roses at intermission

Finale (their capes make a heart)


good night
