Participate in Alzheimer’s Night

 


The fascinating Turandot by Puccini, produced by the Festival of Peralada, will be played this summer to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the festival.
Puccini’s last opera will be presented at the Festival in a new production under the stage direction of Mario Gas, with set design by Paco Azorín and boasting an outstanding cast starring soprano Irene Theorin as Princess Turandot, tenor Roberto Aronica as Calaf, and soprano Maria Kazarava as Liù. A production featuring the Barcelona Gran Teatre del Liceu Orchestra and the Intermezzo Choir, under the baton and direction of Giampaolo Bisanti and José Luis Basso.
An opera guaranteed to reach the heart, for two special nights, at a festival that has made a privileged place for itself in the world of the opera and great song performers.
