Ukrainian soprano Liudmyla Monastyrska takes on the title role of Puccini's icy princess—live in cinemas on May 7. Tenor Yonghoon Lee is the bold prince determined to win Turandot’s love, alongside soprano Michelle Bradley as the devoted servant Liù and legendary bass Ferruccio Furlanetto as the blind king Timur. Marco Armiliato conducts Puccini’s stirring opera, which takes the stage in the company’s dazzling, ever-popular production by Franco Zeffirelli.
One of the Met's greatest productions. I have seen it live and in theaters many times. It is always a great opera.
Puccini’s Turandot is probably the most perfect opera written!
