After months of live music deprivation, audiences are invited to experience the power of opera’s most famous aria in Puccini’s Turandot when it returns to the Sydney Opera House on January 12, 2022.
A fantasy opera of poetry and myth, Turandot transports audiences to an exotic world where fear and love go hand in hand. Viewers will be on the edge of their seats as suitors answer riddles at the risk of death in an attempt to win the hand of the ice princess of opera.
OA Artistic Director Lyndon Terracini is pleased to announce that rising star Australian soprano Anna-Louise Cole will share the title role. “Anna-Louise has been a member of our Young Artist Program and is ready to tackle these big roles. It is really exciting that she will make her role debut as Turandot so audiences in Sydney can hear what her voice can really do.”
Also sharing the lead roles will be Russian tenor Ivan Gyngazov making his Opera Australia debut as Calàf while South Korean sopranos Karah Son and Mariana Hong will share the part of Liù.
Jan 12-Mar 14. Sydney Opera House, Bennelong Point, Sydney. $79+b.f. Tickets & Info: www.opera.org.au
