Drawing inspiration from Chinese history and culture, the company presents a gorgeous rendition of Puccini’s opera “Turandot,” with a full cast of over 200 singers and musicians, starring Italian tenor Max Jota and soprano Maria Tomassi.  The story of Princess Turandot and her stream of ill-fated suitors is a redemption tale that emphasizes the importance of loyalty and the power of love.

Bravery is nothing without wisdom and compassion. Love cannot exist without an open heart. These lessons we learn during a dramatic couple of days in the imperial palace, where the princess will only give her hand to a foreign prince if he can answer three riddles. Plenty of unsuccessful suitors have gone to the guillotine, yet when a unique stranger arrives in town, he is sure he can come away with a wife.

What follows is a surprising betrayal, a battle of wills, and a shocking demonstration of love from an unlikely source. How will it end? Immerse yourself in this twisting tale to find out. The elaborate and regal costumes, jewellery and props are the epitome of eye candy, leaving audiences wanting more.
