Making its Middle East debut at Dubai Opera, the prominent Shanghai Opera House takes center stage with Puccini's spectacular masterpiece "Turandot". In Ancient Peking, the beautiful, icy Princess Turandot announces that she will marry the man who can solve her three riddles, but gravely punish those who cannot. Heads roll until the arrival of a clever prince who is determined to win over the princess, or die trying. He solves her trio of challenges and then offers Turandot his life if she can solve the riddle of his name. Will true love be enough to soften the vengeful princess' heart? The magical version of Turandot under the direction of Roberto Andò was held as the first new opera production of Shanghai Opera House 2018 Season and received wide acclaim. This version of Turandot consists of more than 200 artists, and it turns the legend between eastern and western cultures into a test of fear and love. In this version produced by Shanghai Opera House, Puccini’s encyclopedia-style opera looks like a prism and it reflects the modernity in the music or the 20th century.
