Puccini’s blockbuster returns to LA Opera for the first time in two decades, in a fantastical production designed by David Hockney.
Captivated by a beauty who scorns love, a renegade prince enters an all but impossible contest, where the price of failure is death. But beyond the legendary riddles, he’ll find another challenge in melting Turandot’s stubborn heart.
Soprano Angela Meade takes on the thrilling title role, with tenor Russell Thomas as her impetuous suitor and soprano Guanqun Yu as the woman who shows everyone the true meaning of devotion.

“Meade’s voice has lustrous body and brilliant volume. There is dark richness that holds the potential for exceptional expressivity when that weight of sound is moved with graceful ease.”
“The designs [by David Hockney] were at once enchanting and disorienting, brightly timbred and coolly esthetic, powerfully alluring and disturbingly inhuman.”
