The Royal Opera’s Turandot is now available to pre-order in HD on DVD and Blu-ray both online and from the Royal Opera House shop.

The production features star soprano Lise Lindstrom, described by critics as having an ‘immensely powerful voice replete with brilliance and focus’. She is accompanied by the acclaimed Italian tenor Marco Berti as Calaf and the touching Eri Nakamura as Liù. Henrik Nánási conducts. Read audience reactions to the opening night.

Andrei Serban’s production of Puccini’s dark fairytale is one of The Royal Opera’s most spectacular productions; since its premiere at the Cultural Olympiad in Los Angeles in 1984, it has been performed almost 100 times. This release marks the first time the production has been available on DVD.

The DVD includes an introduction to Turandot, backstage films and a cast gallery.

Turandot is currently on the ROH main stage, and runs until 10 March. A limited number of tickets is available. Returns may become available, and 67 day tickets are released on the morning of each performance.
