TURANDOT, the first BD/DVD of a cycle of the complete Puccini operas in partnership with La Scala and conducted by Chailly. Quality casts and sumptuous productions guarantee a new benchmark for these classic operas. Nina Stemme assumes the title role with Maria Agresta as Liu with Aleksandrs Antonenko as the heroic Calaf.

Gramophone Magazine

April 2017

“The set and costumes (Raimund Bauer and Andrea Schmidt-Futterer) are a feast for the eye...[Stemme] delivers ‘In questa reggia’ with burnished tone, culminating in a gleaming top C...Tsymbalyuk is touching in Timur’s lament for Liù, and the masks are well characterised...A firm recommendation for this eminently watchable offering from the theatre of the opera’s premiere.”

BBC Music Magazine

*****

“it is a measure of Lehnhoff's authority that you never question his choices...Chailly digs deep into Puccini's score...And the La Scala orchestra plays as if their life depended on it...Stemme is in the great tradition of Birgit Nilsson's Turandot, though there is a touching uncertainty around her Princess too...Agresta's Liù is one of the most appealing on record.”
