The Círculo del Liceo hosted the conference on the opera Turandot by Giacomo Puccini, given by Carlos Calderón, Dr. in Humanities, musician and historian, as a part of the Series of Conferences prior to the operas of the season 19/20 of the Gran Teatre del Liceu.
A new production by video artist Franc Aleu, who frequently collaborates with La Fura dels Baus. Video artist Franc Aleu has chosen Puccini's last opera for his first venture as stage director.
Just 20 years ago, the Liceu reopened after the fire with a performance of Turandot. Now the “ice princess” returns to the opera house on the Rambla. She is embodied in the first cast by the great Iréne Theorin. Other members of the five-star line-up are Lise Lindstrom, Jorge de León, Gregory Kunde, Ermonela Jaho and Anita Hartig.
