as part of Metropolitan Opera Live
Fathom Events and the Metropolitan Opera present a broadcast of Puccini’s Turandot, LIVE in select cinemas nationwide on Saturday, October 12.
Franco Zeffirelli’s spectacular production returns to cinemas, with Yannick Nézet-Séguin, the Met’s Jeanette Lerman-Neubauer Music Director, conducting his first Puccini opera with the company. Powerhouse soprano Christine Goerke takes on the icy title princess, alongside tenor Roberto Aronica as the unknown prince vying for her love. 3 hrs, 25 min.
"Yannick Nézet-Séguin leads a revelatory TURANDOT! The strong cast was headed by the blazing soprano Christine Goerke as Puccini’s icy Princess Turandot, the ardent tenor Yusif Eyvazov as Calaf, and the plush-voiced soprano Eleonora Buratto as Liù. The chorus, during the crowd scenes, sounded superb. What stood out, though, was the textured, tart and lushly beautiful playing Mr. Nézet-Séguin drew from the orchestra." - New York Times
