  • Overview

    What are you in for

    The way to a woman’s heart can be plenty, but in this fantasy opera the only way a suitor can win over Chinese princess Turandot is by taking on three riddles. If they fail, they are executed.

    Set in an exotic world depicted by elaborate sets and Puccini’s powerful aria, Turandot takes you on an almost impossible quest to win the love of a brutal princess by a brave suitor. Travel back to ancient China as you lay witness to the events unravelling in the Peking Imperial Palace. Be ready to watch over hundred performers, in colourful costumes, ornate masks, body paints and red drapes, dancing in a unique style involving martial arts and stylized movements.

    Renowned conductor Christian Badea will lead a vibrant score of the usual high standards. The thrilling cast has Amber Wagner as the ice princess with Andeka Gorrotxategi as the man determined to win her heart. Hyeseoung Kwon reprises her touching turn as slave Liù.

    The opera is performed in Italian with surtitles screens above the stage that translate the words into English and Chinese.

    Voucher Information: No need to print! You can show your voucher on your smartphone or other device.

    So there’s no last-minute rush please arrive at the start point 15 minutes early. The ushers will close the doors at show time and may not allow latecomers in until a suitable gap in the performance.

    Check your phone and other electronic devices, and anything else that might go beep or ring or buzz: make sure they are all off. A glowing screen can also be distracting to those around you so don't check your phone during the performance.

    Photography, sound recording or any kind of filming is not permitted during the performance but you're welcome to take photos before and after the performance and at interval.

    It’s a lot of fun to put on your glamorous best for a night at the opera, but casual dress is perfectly acceptable. There’s no compulsory dress code – wear what you’ll feel comfortable in. It can get cold in the theater, so consider an extra layer.

    We want everyone to be a part of this magical experience. If you have any special seating requirements, drop a mail to our local operator at customerservice@opera.org.au and they will ensure to help you plan the best way they could.
